From Carolina Journal Radio Program No. 730: The Raise the Age campaign picked up a high-profile endorsement recently. State Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Martin made a rare appearance at the state Legislative Building to tout the campaign.

Jon Guze, John Locke Foundation director of legal studies, analyzes potential benefits of the campaign.
