Today, on the first day of candidate filing, Democratic activists filed a lawsuit challenging North Carolina’s new congressional map, which was approved by the North Carolina General Assembly over a month ago.
Speaker Moore has released the following statement:
NC House Speaker Tim Moore said, “It has taken Democratic activists over a month after these maps were approved by the General Assembly to concoct these baseless allegations. This is a desperate attempt to throw chaos into North Carolina’s elections, on the first day of candidate filing no less. We are fully confident that these maps are going to be used in this election and every election this decade.”
