Governor for north carolina
RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina's Republican Party has offered two replacement nominees for the state's reconstituted elections board that is expected to examine a still-unresolved congressional race. The move came after questions about whether a new law disqualified two of the party's original picks. State GOP Chairman Robin Hayes wrote a letter Saturday to the governor offering new nominees David Black of Concord and Kenneth Raymond of Winston-Salem. Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper had said two previous nominees appeared to be disqualified by a state law that prohibits certain "electioneering" activities in the past four years. One previous nominee began a super PAC in 2018, while another used to lead the conservative Civitas Institute. Cooper will pick two from a list of four GOP nominees to join three Democrats on a five-member board that will be created Jan. 31. … [Read more...] about GOP offers 2 new picks for North Carolina election board

The death toll from the hurricane-turned-tropical storm has climbed to at least five. A day after Florence blew ashore in North Carolina with 90 mph winds, more than 2ft of rain had fallen in places, with forecasters saying there could be an additional one-and-a-half feet by the end of the weekend. Rivers and creeks rose towards historic levels, threatening flash flooding that could devastate communities and endanger dams, roads and bridges. “I cannot overstate it: Floodwaters are rising, and if you aren’t watching for them you are risking your life,” the state’s governor Roy Cooper said. In its initial onslaught along the coast, Florence buckled buildings, … [Read more...] about Storm Florence: Disaster declared in North Carolina

Candidates like Linda Coleman were left struggling to understand what would come next, and how the fast-approaching midterm elections would now be conducted. The court left open a host of possibilities. Ms. Coleman might have to run in a new Democratic primary, in a newly drawn district with voters who do not know her. Or she might find herself in an open, multicandidate election with no primary at all. Then again, the old map and her current district, including part of Raleigh and … [Read more...] about Judges’ Ruling on Election Map Plunges North Carolina Politics Into Disarray
