RALEIGH – Just as soon as Gov. Roy Cooper finished his veto splurge, the General Assembly began penciling in veto override votes on the calendar. Wednesday lawmakers began picking off those vetoes one by one.
Four vetoes had been overridden in the House and sent to the Senate by 11 o’clock, with even more on the docket.
Just goes to show how futile Cooper’s opposition from the Left is. He may have a big bully pulpit and a friendly-media fueled megaphone to spread the Democrats’ talking points,but at the end of the day he is powerless to stop a unified Republican legislative majority from exercising that branch’s constitutional duties.
