After the 2016 elections, a veteran Democrat noted, “If you’re going to win just three statewide races, Governor, Attorney General and Supreme Court are the three to win.” Indeed. Thanks to Mike Morgan’s victory in the Supreme Court race, the Court last week ruled 4-3 along party lines for Governor Cooper against the legislature’s cockamamie Election/Ethics Board power grab.
Give a shout-out to the Super PAC, whoever it was, that ran the ad in 2016 labelling Morgan’s opponent the “Gerrymandering Judge.” Well played indeed!
You wonder how Democratic legislative candidates would fare this year with this message: “My opponent voted to gerrymander congressional, legislative and judicial elections. I’ll vote to end gerrymandering – period.”
