NCDP on Republican Lies to Repeal HB 2

RALEIGH, N.C.—NCDP Chairwoman Patsy Keever released the following statement in response to Republican lies to repeal House Bill 2:

“Tonight’s vote was nothing but a sleight of hand from North Carolina Republicans. They have lied to voters every step of the way in an effort to advance their discriminatory agenda.

“They have done nothing to protect against discrimination and have only further damaged our reputation.

“Their lies and partisanship have cost our state and its citizens dearly and we will continue to feel the consequences of their failed actions.

“Republicans are holding our state hostage, and we will make sure voters know as they head to the polls next year. We at the North Carolina Democratic Party will continue to fight their failed leadership and to make sure they pay a price at the ballot box for the harm they have done to our state.”
