NCDP Statement on NC Democrats Sustaining Governor Cooper’s Veto

Raleigh – NCDP Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after North Carolina Democrats voted to sustain Governor Cooper’s veto of legislation that would undermine reproductive freedom:

“Today’s historic vote proves how vital it was to break the Republican supermajority and elect pro-choice Democrats to the General Assembly. There’s a new reality in North Carolina, one where Republicans can no longer push extreme, divisive legislation purely for political gain. Democrats will keep fighting back against these efforts as they push for real progress on improving public schools, expanding health care access and boosting our economy.”
