NC GOP brags about suppressing the black vote
Black voting down, “Caucasian” voting up, brags a GOP North Carolina press release.
…North Carolina Republicans used their two-to-one edge on electoral boards to slash early voting options and force long lines at the few early voting locations in urban centers like Charlotte, Raleigh, Fayetteville, and Winston-Salem. Unsurprisingly, almost 9 percent fewer African Americans took advantage of early voting than had in 2012.
According to Colin Campbell of the Raleigh-based News & Observer, the North Carolina GOP sent out a press release titled “North Carolina Obama Coalition Crumbling,” citing the decline in African American early voting and the increase in “Caucasian” early voting.
