NCDP Statement on Nomination Of Thomas Farr To Eastern District Court Of North Carolina

RALEIGH, NC – NCDP Executive Director Kimberly Reynolds released the following quote regarding the news of President Trump nominating Raleigh attorney Thomas Farr to the federal Eastern District Court Of North Carolina:

“Since Republicans in the General Assembly have gained control, 14 of their laws have been declared unconstitutional, and Thomas Farr has been at the forefront of defending these laws. From the Republican’s constitutional amendment banning marriage equality, to their voter suppression laws targeting African-Americans with surgical precision, and their illegal and unconstitutional gerrymandered districts, Thomas Farr has been on-call for Republicans and their dangerous agenda every step of the way. We urge Senators Burr and Tillis to reject Farr’s nomination if they want to do what is best for our state.”
