What state are we in? Gov. Perdue addresses General Assembly tonight

What’s the state of the Old North State in the midst of enormous budget deficits, high unemployment and weak job production? Gov. Bev Perdue addresses a joint session of the N.C. House and Senate — and the N.C. public —  tonight at 7 p.m. with her position on that question. Senate leader Phil Berger will present a Republican response immediately following the governor’s speech.

The State of the State address will be broadcast live by UNC-TV (local cable channel 8) at 7 p.m. and via online radio beginning at 7:10 p.m. on Raleigh’s WPTF.com.
