Yesterday I briefly touched on the difficult choice Gov. Bev Perdue faces regarding the repealed, rewritten, revamped —however you see it —-Racial Justice Act.
JLF president John Hood analyzes:
To get back to Perdue’s dilemma, her problem is that the Senate voted 27-17 to concur with the House rollback of the Racial Justice Act. It is now on her desk. If she sticks to her position and vetoes the bill, she will once again have taken a position contrary to that of most North Carolinians, including many moderate Democrats. But if she allows the rollback, the left-wing base of her party will go ballistic.
Hood concludes the governor’s “reelection prospects just got a little dimmer.” It’s all right there for Pat McCrory, but if anybody can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory…….
