This week, perhaps the state’s most powerful politician, Senator Phil Berger joins Tim to talk about the 2023 legislative session that kicks off in full this week. Sen. Berger dishes on Medicaid expansion, abortion, tax cuts, voter ID, medical marijuana, sports betting, whether North Carolina is truly a “purple” state, and so much more! This is a must listen to get a good sense of where Republicans plan to go this year as they are near a supermajority on Jones Street.
