Press Release:

    Good morning,

    After months of flip-flopping on the filibuster and hiding from the press, Cheri Beasley finally emerged and admitted during an interview with WTVD-Raleigh's Jonah Kaplan that she would eliminate the filibuster if elected to the U.S. Senate.



    Kaplan: "What do you think a change to the filibuster looks like? Should it be limited? Should it be just blanket get rid of the filibuster?"

    Beasley: "We should eliminate it."

    Kaplan: "Just blanket get rid of the filibuster?"

    Beasley: "That's correct."

    In August, Beasley was asked if she would consider eliminating the filibuster and she refused to answer despite having previously said that it is something that she would "take a look at." Then in October, Beasley admitted that she wants to eliminate the filibuster. Her back and forth on the issue is unsurprising, given her hesitancy to take a position on just about anything, but Beasley's spokesperson can't try to clarify Beasley out of this particular stance: Beasley wants to eliminate the filibuster.

    "Cheri Beasley has caved to the radical left and will do anything - including nuking the filibuster - to keep the favor and funding of Democrats like Chuck Schumer . Their out-of-touch agenda has no place in North Carolina, where voters will continue to reject their efforts to ram through policies that will only hurt workers and families." - RNC Spokeswoman Alex Nolley

    In the words of Beasley's very-own role model, ending the filibuster would "be a doomsday for Democracy." Yet, Beasley is marching in line with the Democrats' efforts to change the rules and force a federal election takeover that would eviscerate widely-popular provisions like voter ID. Their attack on the filibuster is only about one thing: power.
