NCGOP Update: Fighting back in the Courts

 9th District, Commentary, NC GOP  Comments Off on NCGOP Update: Fighting back in the Courts
Feb 112018
 
 
 

Dear Friends –

Please read this important update.Despite the Democrat’s efforts to suspend our elections, candidate filing will open Monday, February 12th, at noon. We still have critical needs in some legislative districts that we need you to help us fill!

Below is an update on the Democrat inspired chaos in our electoral process. I urge you to assist us as we move into candidate filing on Monday.

The U.S. Supreme Court recently rejected Democrat attempts to throw out our congressional districts for the 2018 election.

We feel confident our congressional district Elections will be held in the CURRENT districts that were first used in 2016. At this time all 10 GOP members of Congress will be seeking re-election in those districts, although some will have primary challengers.

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected most of the Democrat’s baseless complaints about our legislative districts.

NC House redistricting Chair David Lewis issued this statement: “I am thankful that the U.S. Supreme Court has blocked the lower court’s egregious attempt to rule on purely state-law claims and has blocked two thirds of the California professor’s redrawn House districts.  We will be conducting the 2018 elections in General Assembly drawn Congressional seats and nearly all General Assembly drawn state House seats.  While I am very disappointed that this stay did not extend to the court’s unfounded federal claims, I am confident that the court’s full review of this case on the merits will ultimately vindicate the General Assembly’s entire enacted plans.”
​Still, D​emocrats have not stopped efforts to win in court ​when they can’t win at the ballot box. Just minutes after being rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court, the ​Democrats went back to state court and attempted to SUSPEND OUR ELECTIONS PROCESS.

Just like when Democrat Gov. Beverly Perdue called for the suspension of elections, Democrats have attempted to stop candidate filing which begins Monday at noon.

As Rep. Lewis stated,​ Democrats​ will inject as much chaos into our election system as possible as they go judge shopping and attempt to sue the state’​s voters until they get what they want from the courts. https://medium.com/@RepDavidRLewis/comments-from-todays-press-conference-on-redistricting-litigation-and-democrat-efforts-to-cause-6ded21cf6633

However, as of now, candidate filing will open Monday at noon.

http://www.ncsbe.gov/Elections/Blog-Agency/ArticleID/40/Candidate-filing-for-appellate-judicial-offices-now-set-for-June

We are still in need of some candidates in key urban areas of North Carolina and some rural areas down east. Please note: barring any further action by the courts, judicial candidates will file during a special judicial filing period June 18-29.

Please contact Katie Kouba at 919-424-5557  if you, or someone you know is interested in running for office.

Democrats are hoping their constant court and judge shopping will hurt our candidate recruitment. We can​’t let them succeed!​

Sincerely,

Dallas Woodhouse

Chairman Robin Hayes Calls On Legislature to Halt Gov. Cooper’s Unconstitutional Slush Fund

 UnionGOP  Comments Off on Chairman Robin Hayes Calls On Legislature to Halt Gov. Cooper’s Unconstitutional Slush Fund
Feb 082018
 
Raleigh, NC – North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Robin Hayes is calling on the legislature to take all necessary actions to prevent Governor Cooper from creating an unconstitutional $58 million slush fund with state dollars, calling the scheme a return to the Jim Black, Mike Easley corruption era.  
“The constitution clearly gives the legislature the responsibility to appropriate the state’s funds, and the State Ethic’s Act makes it a crime for an elected official to use his public office for personal benefit. Governor Cooper created a $58 million slush fund that will be controlled by him and him alone– this is a dangerous scheme that is not lawful, constitutional, or ethical. This type of payment for a permit, coerced from private businesses for the benefit of a politician, is the sort of pay-to-play action that Democrats have become all too well known for, and it is up to us to stop them.” – NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes
