The Pulse is a nonpartisan blog about the issues, debates, and people that affect North Carolina public policy. As with the organization that sponsors it, NC Policy Watch, its ultimate objective is to improve the quality of life in the state by publishing timely, accessible and credible news and commentary that advances the public debate. NC Policy Watch does not endorse or oppose candidates for political office.

The Pulse welcomes the contributions of interested people of all points of view provided they are of a reasonable length, have some relevance to issues of North Carolina public policy and abide by the common rules of online etiquette (i.e., please avoid inappropriate language and show a measure of respect for others). If you would like to be contributing writer, please send your post to [email protected] with ‘blog’ in the subject line. If the post meets with our criteria, we will consider publishing it.

If you have a complaint or correction to offer with respect to any content published on an NC Policy Watch website, please contact Project Director Rob Schofield at 919-861-2065 or [email protected].
