NCDP Statement on Tim Moore’s Newest Extremist Member

Today, North Carolina Republicans in the General Assembly welcomed a new member of their caucus – COVID-19 conspiracy theorist and Capitol insurrection participant Donnie Loftis. North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Bobbie Richardson released the following statement in response: 

“It has been almost 11 months since violent rioters breached the halls of the United States Capitol in attempts to undermine our Democracy. Today marks a new low for General Assembly Republicans, because instead of condemning those actions and rejecting the rhetoric that incites violence, they are welcoming a Capitol insurrection participant with open arms.Tim Moore has repeatedly dodged questions by reporters who want to know if he supports his members’ actions on January 6th. The Republican Party hand-picked Loftis to join their ranks, further demonstrating how trending towards extremism is the future of the North Carolina Republican Party.”
