Outgoing NC Governor says HB2 Will Be Repealed

Interesting news from North Carolina... Well, more interesting news.

Governor Pat McCrory is calling a special session of the General Assembly to repeal HB2 (the bathroom bill).

From a press release:
“Governor McCrory has always publicly advocated a repeal of the overreaching Charlotte ordinance. But those efforts were always blocked by Jennifer Roberts, Roy Cooper and other Democratic activists,” said Graham Wilson, Press Secretary. “This sudden reversal with little notice after the gubernatorial election sadly proves this entire issue originated by the political left was all about politics and winning the governor’s race at the expense of Charlotte and our entire state. As promised, Governor McCrory will call a special session.”
Incoming Governor Roy Cooper released a statement on Facebook

More to come
