NC GOP Vote To Censure Richard Burr A Sign Of Already Bitter GOP Senate Primary

NCDP Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after the North Carolina Republic Party voted to censure Senator Richard Burr for his vote to impeach Donald Trump.

“The North Carolina Republican Party is in an all out civil war. Today’s censure vote against their senior Senator for a vote of conscience in the most bipartisan conviction of a president in history proves this is the Donald Trump Party above all else. North Carolinians are already fleeing the party by the thousands, donors are closing their checkbooks, and political leaders are withdrawing their support after North Carolina Republicans helped incite a dangerous attack on our Capitol, and the fallout is only growing. It’s clear — North Carolina Republicans are already in a bitter civil war that will shape not only the messy primary to replace Senator Burr but also the party for years to come.”
