via @newsobserver • ‪The @nc_gop made it their mission to make voting a privilege for the select few who fit their profiles. And instead of carefully planning out a Constitutional Amendment on this issue, they recklessly jammed one through while they still had Veto-proof control. • These are the same people who, in 2013, passed a #VoterID law that targeted people of color with “surgical precision.”The party that engaged in #ElectionFraud this very year. • ‪They want nothing more than to chip away at our right to #vote . Now, it’s up to our courts to defend that right!‬ But don’t let up. Make calls and let your voice of opposition be heard! • • • #ncvoterid #votersuppression #voteridlaws #northcarolina #ncvotes #ncpol #ncga #ncelections #election2018
The people of North Carolina spoke, "We want Voter ID." The Republican-led legislature listened. The Democrat governor did not. Fortunately, the people prevailed as shown by this picture in the people's House. NC Voter ID is law. #ncga #ncpol
Grandma Goals 📚
NC citizens want Voter ID but the governor ignored their wishes. I'm proud of the NC General Assembly for caring about the integrity of our elections and the people's wishes. #ncga #ncpol

@tictoc reports that the rich are the ones benefiting from the @gop & @realdonaldtrump “tax cut”; NOT the middle and working classes. • This was nothing but a #TaxScam from the start. The rich just keeping getting richer thanks to tax breaks and policies geared to put corporations first. • It’s long overdue we have an economy that works for ALL & prioritizes people over profits. • • • #TaxCuts #peopleoverprofit #peopleoverprofits #ncpol #taxes #taxbreaks #turnncblue

How the Grinches stole the 9th District... #ncpol #ncga #nc09
Wolfpack for life 🐺.
Legislation quickly passed by NC lawmakers this week would prepare a path for Republicans to dump their nominee Mark Harris in the still-undecided #NC09 Congressional race marred with ballot fraud allegations. If the state elections board decides ballot irregularities are cause for a redo, the legislation — if allowed to go into law by the governor— would require new primary elections 9th Congressional District race, in addition to a new general election. That would allow Republicans another look at Harris, the Republican who led Democrat Dan McCready by 905 votes in unofficial results. That story via the Associated Press and more 9th district coverage on WFAE.org. Link in bio. #ncpol #northcarolina #midterms2018

BREAKING: #NC09 Dan McCready finally clutches his pearls? "Ok, let's all understand this as working-class neighbors together! This rich white kid who grew up his entire life in South Charlotte "never imagined" that our rich culturally diverse neighbors in his own back yard have been, could have been, and still are fighting daily for #CivilRights , to pass an #ERA , against #VoterID suppression, for #Dreamers , #LGBTQ protections, against #HB2 , against #Amended1 , against the #AIDS crisis, #AffordableHousing , #LivingWage , #MedicareForAll , #MedicalCannabis , #GunReformNow , #No287g #AbolishICE or basic equality for all our childrenin in #CMS ? #Ncpol systemic racism and bigotry is suddenly new to his family? #BlessHisHeart What on earth does he think good neighbors and neighbors of faith have been doing all this time for decades in our Queen City? #SMH !

Thank you, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper for vetoing SB 824, voter ID bill that would undoubtedly establish barriers to voting for so many voters in already marginalized communities. NC lawmakers should sustain the veto. #VoterID #protectdemocracy #protectourdemocracy #ncga #nc #ncpol #ncpolitics #northcarolinapolitics #northcarolina #governorcooper #votingrights #vote #voting #sb284

Amid an investigation into election fraud in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, new evidence shows that possible fraud involving absentee mail-in ballots may have happened in the 7th as well.⁣ ⁣ About a third of absentee ballots that were requested in Columbus County were never returned, most belonging to registered Democrats.⁣ ⁣ More at the link in bio.⁣ ⁣ #electionfraud #election2018 #elections2018 #vote #voterfraud #ncpol

I’m still coming up for air from this election & political year - even though it’s not even close to over. Regardless, my biggest annual event took place last week and despite a dynamic end of the year prompting a lot of additional anxiety about the logistics of the event, it went as well as I could have hoped. @cait.in.carolina deserves a lot of credit for her help - both practical and emotional - in keeping me steady and moving forward. I’m grateful to many of our state’s leaders for speaking, including Gov. Cooper, Speaker Moore, Rep. Jackson, Sen. Berger, and Sen. McKissick. Even though I’m among the biggest political nerds out there, I’m ready for a little respite. Ending the year tired, but full of gratitude and appreciation. #NCPOL #NCGA #NCGOV
