NCDP Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Order

January 10, 2017

RALEIGH, NC –NCDP Chairwoman Patsy Keever released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s order on special elections in gerrymandered legislative districts:

“I am confident that when the U.S. Supreme Court considers this case later this month they will uphold the decision of the lower courts, which found a clear pattern of racial discrimination in the gerrymandered districts drawn by Republican legislators in Raleigh. Representative Moore and Senator Berger’s continued opposition to legislative districts that fairly represent all North Carolinians speaks volumes to how far they will go to protect their political power.”
