It’s our Primary Election roundup on this edition of Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins.  Last week, we met with a panel of political experts to discuss the presidential and gubernatorial contests that were up for primary vote, and today, that same panel joins us to talk about the outcomes and what they’ll mean for us as the November election becomes the next stop at the voting booth.
