NC Democrats Quickly Raise More Than $1 MILLION to Take Control of Legislature from Republicans

North Carolina Democrats say they’re getting organized around their goal of retaking the Republican-controlled legislature thanks to the person who’d benefit the most — Gov. Roy Cooper.

Cooper and the state Democratic Party announced Tuesday a new initiative already started to get back a majority in the House and Senate by the close of the 2020 elections.

The party said Cooper already has raised more than $1 million for the “Break the Majority” effort, and party Chair Wayne Goodwin says the goal is for millions more. Exactly when the initiative will be first tested is unclear. A federal court hasn’t yet decided whether new General Assembly elections will be required before November 2018 once legislative maps are soon redrawn.
