N.C. Republican Party leaders said Tuesday that Gov. Roy Cooper should stop pushing for a full repeal of House Bill 2 and instead propose a compromise that GOP legislators can live with.
NC GOP chairman Robin Hayes and executive director Dallas Woodhouse held a news conference following Monday’s news that the NCAA might block sports championships from being held in North Carolina through 2022.
“A simple repeal does not have a possibility of passing this legislature,” Woodhouse said. “It seems to us that it is up to Gov. Cooper … to put forward something that can pass. If not, he’s just pounding his fist, and he’s helping determine North Carolina’s fate when it comes to the NCAA, the ACC and other issues.”
