Gov. Pat McCrory responded Monday to recent comments made by NC Attorney General Roy Cooper, calling them “immature.”
Last week Cooper, speaking at a Democratic event in Charlotte, said 2016 was when “ we take the state back from the extremists.” He did not mention the governor or any Republican by name but characterized the GOP-led legislature and administration as “not just conservative but extremist.”
Speaking to the Charlotte Business Journal after a economic development announcement McCrory had this to say about Cooper’s remarks: “Using that term is, I think, both reckless and immature, especially in his position as attorney general. The extremists are who we’re fighting overseas right now. I think that word is too casually being used by politicians at the expense of good, productive dialogue.” Read the entire story here.
