“Today we honor the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr.,” said NCGOP Chairman Hasan Harnett.
“A man of true character and integrity, Martin Luther King, Jr. fought unceasingly to make our country better for all of its people. His legacy is a constant reminder that we must work every day to see that each American has boundless opportunity.”
North Carolina Democrats generally RUN from their national counterparts, but not Roy Cooper. The Democrat candidate for Governor appears in a video endorsing liberal Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton represents the same failed policies of the past and would love nothing more than to bring North Carolina backwards, something she has in common with 30 year Raleigh insider Roy Cooper,” said NCGOP Chairman Hasan Harnett.
“Will Roy Cooper and former Charlotte mayor turned D.C. Democrat Anthony Foxx‘s lead and throw their support behind Hillary Clinton? Together, these Democrats would take North Carolina back to the days of higher taxes and stagnant economic growth.”
Cooper is vying for the Democrat nomination for Governor. If he wins, he faces likely Republican nominee, Governor Pat McCrory.

Leaders at the North Carolina Republican Party appeared thrilled with the slate of candidates they are proposing in 2016. In this election cycle, they say:
“The NCGOP has filled all the 2016 Council of State and Appeals Court races, while contesting 44 races in the State Senate (up from 41 in 2014), compared to just 38 for the Democrats. The NCGOP will also have candidates running in 90 House races.”
The party stated that “the impressive slate of candidates across the state to continue the record of economic success and oppose the Obama-Clinton-Cooper agenda.”
Republican leadership has helped create more than 230,000 jobs, implemented historic tax reform and is making North Carolina a top state for both business and employment. It’s no wonder there’s a draw for more Republican leadership in North Carolina,” said NCGOP Chairman Hasan Harnett. (left)
“We are already hard at work with Republican candidates in 2016, like Lt. Governor Dan Forest, who could become the first Republican in North Carolina’s history re-elected to the post.
“We’re hitting the ground running to elect Republicans in 2016”.
