Cooper critical of North Carolina in Huffington Post blog

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

State Attorney General Roy Cooper criticized North Carolina’s turn to a Republican majority in a Huffington Post blog titled, “North Carolina: Threatening Fifty Years of Progress in Ten Months.”

In the article Cooper, a Democrat, says, “This is not the North Carolina that any of us recognize,” and says the “Tea Party created its own playground of extremist fantasies.” Cooper also cites tax breaks for the top 1%, layoffs for teacher assistants to fund private school voucher programs and election law changes that he says make it harder for North Carolinians to vote.
