Rob Christensen talked about North Carolina’s role as a “swing ” state in the 2012 presidential election. Among other topics Mr. Christensen discussed the unemployment and jobs outlook in the state and key issues for North Carolina voters, and he also answered viewer questions.

“Swing” states are those in which either both major political parties have a strong chance of winning a state’s electoral college votes. As a result both Republican and Democrats campaign more heavily in those states because they represent the best chances to gain electoral votes. 

This was part four of a “Washington Journal” series on the ten “swing” or “battleground” states in the 2012 election: Florida, Nevada, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Ohio. close
