"We can only conclude that the North Carolina General Assembly enacted the challenged provisions of the law with discriminatory intent." -Judge Diana Gribbon Motz
This is a game-changer that exposes Pat McCrory and the Republicans for the manipulative, unconstitutional, and discriminatory extremists that they are. Help us be Victory-Ready to fight back and elect Democrats this year by contributing to the Mecklenburg County Democratic Party above!

"I have known Hillary Clinton for 25 years. I remember her as a great first lady who broke precedent in terms of the role that a first lady was supposed to play as she helped lead the fight for universal health care. I served with her in the United States Senate and know her as a fierce advocate for the rights of children. Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding president and I am proud to stand with her here today." - Sen. Sanders
Thank you, Sen. Sanders for your continued service to our country, championing of progressive causes and your courage to speak up on the many important issues facing our nation today.
Congratulations Judge Mike Morgan for being one of the top two vote-getters in the primary for NC Supreme Court Justice
