After nearly two decades in public office, Rep. Grier Martin, who is a Wake County Democrat, is calling it quits this week.
He’s leaving the legislature to take a job with the Biden administration at the Pentagon. Martin joins us to talk about his incredible military career, including the moment he volunteered for active duty just days after 9/11 and serving overseas just days after his first and only child was born.
He’ll also talk about his political career over the course of governors from both parties and why he now feels burned out from politics.
