Domecast No. 62: GOP convention, Democrat's departure

Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of July 16-17.

With the legislature gone, the lawmaking action turned to Gov. Pat McCrory this week as he signed several major bills. We'll run through what he signed and look ahead at what to expect at next week's Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Then we'll talk with N.C. Rep. Nathan Baskerville, a Henderson Democrat who's decided not to run for re-election this year. He explains why it's hard for Democrats to get even non-controversial legislation approved, and why so few younger people serve in the legislature.

This week's panel features Jordan Schrader and Colin Campbell of The News & Observer.
