RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - In a story that mixes policy with politics, Attorney General Roy Cooper is now under pressure from state Republicans to join a group of his fellow law enforcement officials and Gov. Pat McCrory in a lawsuit that challenges President Obama's use of executive power.

On Thursday, North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Claude Pope referred to Cooper -- who is rumored to eyeing a 2016 gubernatorial run -- a "part time Attorney General and full-time political candidate."

“In a sorry attempt to make it seem like he is leading the nation, President Barack Obama took overreaching and irresponsible action on immigration that could have untold consequences on our state’s education and health care systems,” said Chairman Pope in his statement. “Part-time Attorney General and full-time political candidate Roy Cooper has a serious decision to make – join the suit and protect North Carolina citizens, or stand with the president and allow him to erode one of the most important documents in our nation’s history – the constitution. Will Cooper take a stand, or will he stand on the sidelines as he has done in the past with the popular voter ID legislation or Amendment One? Its time for Cooper to make his positions known, not hide behind a cloak of inaction,” Pope concluded.
Earlier this week, Gov. Pat McCrory joined with other governors and Attorneys General from 17 different states in the suit.

RALEIGH - The North Carolina Democratic Party says it's started running a television ad criticizing Republican leaders at the General Assembly for passing laws that hurt women on issues from abortion and child care to Medicaid and the public schools.


The state party said Tuesday the 60-second commercial is running on cable TV in the Charlotte and Raleigh markets. A party spokesman declined to say how much money is being spent on the ad. An email sent to party supporters asked for more donations to keep the ad running.


The ad features Governor Beverly Perdue, state legislators and former Cabinet secretary and longtime party activist Betty McCain, who said "the GOP has declared war on women." The ad includes footage of Republican House leaders Thom Tillis and Paul Stam.
