Statement on Veto of House Bill 605
Raleigh, N.C. — Sen. Warren Daniel (R-Burke) released the following statement on Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of House Bill 605.
“This commonsense legislation alleviated an unnecessarily constricted timeline for candidate filing and initiating the election process. It also made necessary changes to the municipal election timeline requested by the State Board of Elections. The party-line vote on House Bill 605 and Gov. Cooper’s veto lay bare what redistricting litigation really is — nothing more than a pure political power play.”
