Cooper and NC Legislative Democrats Double Down on Biden’s School Closure Agenda

Press Release:

    Raleigh, NC     The North Carolina Republican Party released the following statement following the failed veto override vote.

    "Tonight, NC Senate Democrats let the kids and families of North Carolina down and showed profiles of cowardice in the face of pressure from Governor Cooper and teacher union bosses," said NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley. "With their vote against SB 37, the Senate Democrats — including three members who previously voted in support of reopening schools — helped Governor Cooper keep schoolhouse doors across North Carolina locked. It is very disappointing that North Carolina Democrats are siding with Joe Biden and teachers unions to keep our schools closed — our kids deserve much better than this kind of naked special-interest politics."
