RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Attorney Gene Boyce has not prevailed in his attempt to force the State Bar to investigate his complaint against Democratic gubernatorial candidate Roy Cooper over an incident that occurred in Cooper's 2000 campaign for Attorney General.

Judge Donald Stephens dismissed the case last week.

Boyce's son Dan lost to Cooper.

In that race, Cooper ran an ad that made claims about excessive attorney fees charged by Boyce. The elder Boyce pursued a claim over the ad for years, saying it was false.

The case was settled in 2014. WRAL reported that the settlement included Cooper paying $75,000 and issuing a written apology.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Kimberly Reynolds commemorated one year of service to the North Carolina Democratic Party with an email urging Democrats to support the party's efforts to curtail what she termed the "Carolina Setback."

"We've had a remarkable year, and I am proud to work with such a wonderful team, all of whom are dedicated to ensuring that we put Pat McCrory's Carolina Setback to bed once and for all," she wrote.

Reynolds then posted five reasons she is proud to have the job and also praised chairman Patsy Keever.

"One thing is clearer than ever: We must elect Democrats to reverse the destructive path our state is currently winding down. So thank you for everything you've done to help move us forward -- whether you've volunteered, made a donation, or put your name on that ballot as a candidate, we wouldn't be here celebrating a year of successes without you."

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was crushed by Donald Trump Tuesday in Indiana's Republican primary election, prompting Cruz to suspend his campaign. He told supporters he no longer sees a path to the nomination.

Trump won at least 51 of the 57 delegates available in Indiana. He now has 1,047 of the 1,237 needed to be the party's presidential nominee.

John Kasich is still in the race. Indications are he will stay even though he has only 153 delegates.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton. Still, Clinton is well on her way to the party's nomination, with 2,202 of the 2,383 delegates needed to take the nomination.
