Good afternoon everybody,
People are still talking about the debate between Ilario Pantano (R) and Mike McIntyre (D) Friday at Cape Fear Community College. The two candidates for NC7 both showed they have the passion for the job and the supporters to boot. Today, we break down the claims. One round in particular piqued our interest. While McIntyre says he voted to save local teachers jobs in Congress recently, Pantano doubts it saved what the congressman claimed. We break down the numbers tonight on WECT News at 5.
New at 6 o'clock tonight, WECT's Max Winitz is taking a closer look at the issue of videotaping police officers in duty. Just this weekend, we recorded a sobriety checkpoint on Market Street. However, 12 states say it's illegal to record police activity without their permission. This issue has already reared its head with a recent tazing incident in Wrightsville Beach. Tonight, Max talks with both sides of a brewing national battle.
Also, starting at 5, the latest on Tropical Storm Danielle, which is threatening to become the second hurricane of this season.
Frances Weller is back from vacation too!
See you beginning at five tonight.
