Well, 2014 is here and, for now, North Carolina government remains stubbornly in the tea party camp. Are voters happy about this? What do they think about the current state of affairs and the politicians running the show? What’s likely to happen this May? How about this November?

And what’s on the state policy agenda for the coming months? Are conservatives wrapping up their agenda or just getting started?

Don’t miss a chance to gather some answers to these questions from two of the state’s leading experts. Join us at 8:15 am on Thursday, January 30, for a Crucial Conversation breakfast featuring Tom Jensen and Chris Fitzsimon.
