it’s time to end partisan gerrymandering

  In case you missed it, team: Last week, I filed a brief with the North Carolina Supreme Court on behalf of Governor Roy Cooper and myself urging the Court to clarify that the North Carolina constitution prohibits partisan gerrymandering.  Partisan gerrymandering distorts our demo…

ADD YOUR NAME: The rich and powerful don’t get to play by their own set of rules
