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

North Carolina Congressional Districts Struck Down for 2018

 9th District, UnionGOP  Comments Off on North Carolina Congressional Districts Struck Down for 2018
Jan 102018
 

The General Assembly must come up with a new map for the 2018 elections by Jan. 24.

A panel of three federal judges in North Carolina struck down the state’s 2016 congressional map as an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander on Tuesday.

The ruling blocks the state from conducting any elections under the 2016 map and orders the state’s General Assembly to redraw congressional districts by Jan. 24 for the 2018 elections.

The state will likely appeal the decision to the Supreme Court and ask for a stay. The Supreme Court is currently considering two other partisan gerrymandering cases, one about state legislative districts in Wisconsin and one about Maryland’s congressional map.

The filing deadline for congressional candidates in North Carolina is Feb. 28, and the primary is May 8.

The Jan. 24 deadline gives the General Assembly two weeks to come up with a remedial plan. But because it’s the middle of an election year, the court is also appointing a so-called special master to develop a remedial plan in case the the General Assembly fails to deliver a plan or their plan doesn’t remedy the partisan gerrymander.

The fact that North Carolina has a Democratic governor doesn’t give Democrats much control in this situation. The governor does not have power to veto a redistricting plan from the General Assembly, said Michael Li, senior counsel at the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program.

The state Democratic party praised the court’s decision Tuesday night, calling it “a major victory for North Carolina and people across the state whose voices were silenced by Republicans’ unconstitutional attempts to rig the system to their partisan advantage.”

Republicans were critical of the ruling.

“We’re going to fight these redistricting cases as far as we can because it really is no longer about the districts as drawn,” said Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the North Carolina Republican Party. “It is about whether the courts, in this case the the fourth circuit, are going to usurp legislative prerogative and authority, well established, and two, whether they are going to replace the legislature’s political judgments with its own political judgements — not its legal judgements,” Woodhouse said.

He expects the state to immediately appeal the decision.

“We are at least entitled to hear what the Supreme Court has to say about this issue,” Woodhouse said.

There’s precedent for court-mandated redistricting during an election year in North Carolina. After a three-judge panel in February 2016 ruled that the GOP-legislature relied too heavily on race in 2011 to draw the 1st and 12th Districts, the General Assembly had to approve a new map for the 2016 elections.

The new map maintained Republicans’ partisan advantage in the delegation but shifted some incumbents’ districts, even putting two incumbents in the same district. The adoption of that new 2016 map forced the state to move its House primaries back to June.
