North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court released its decision on Common Cause v. Rucho:

“For nearly a decade, Republicans have silenced the voices of North Carolinians using racial and partisan gerrymanders to pass extreme legislation and hold onto power at all costs. Today, the Supreme Court rewarded undemocratically-elected politicians who continue to show they will rig our state and our country to hold onto power no matter the cost. North Carolina Democrats are committed to fighting for the fair maps and independent redistricting the people of our state deserve.”

Governor Roy Cooper shared the following comment on HB 370:

"As the former top law enforcement officer in our state, I know that current law allows us to lock up and prosecute dangerous criminals regardless of immigration status. This bill isn’t about that--in addition to being unconstitutional, it’s about scoring political points and using fear to divide us."
