This week in state politics, an analysis of Gov. Roy Cooper's first State of the State address.

This week in North Carolina politics, legislators met to discuss judicial redistricting. They're expected to establish new judicial boundaries when both chambers reconvene next month. This would be the first overhaul of this kind since 1955.

Also, we learned this week that unaffiliated voters now make up the second-largest voting block of registered voters in North Carolina, surpassing Republicans. And we look at results from the Charlotte primary race this week.
