We told you about Governor Cooper shooting down the previous NCGOP recommendations of Buck Newton and Francis DeLuca as potential members of the new state board of elections. Well, the brain trust on Hillsborough Street has come up with two replacement names:
- David Black, chairman of the Cabarrus County Board of Elections (Gosh, WHO ELSE at NCGOP is from Cabarrus County? Hmmmmmm …)
- Kenneth Raymond, a Winston-Salem attorney and former chairman of the Forsyth County board of elections AND member of the previous state board of elections
The new state elections board is to be seated and ready for action the first week of February.
