NCDP Statement on Senate Judiciary Committee Approval of Thomas Farr

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after the Senate Judiciary Committee advanced Thomas Farr’s nomination to the full Senate:

“Thomas Farr has been at forefront of Republicans’ unconstitutional laws and their hostile takeover of North Carolina. From the Republican constitutional amendment banning marriage equality, to their racially gerrymandered, unconstitutional maps and their voter suppression laws targeting African-Americans with surgical precision, Thomas Farr has been Republicans’ go-to defender for the most indefensible parts of their dangerous agenda. The Senate, including Senators Burr and Tillis, must reject his nomination.”
