WALKER: Roy Cooper “Is Trying to Hold Us as Political Hostages Again”
GREENSBORO, N.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C) issued the following statement in regards to Governor Cooper's delay at the expense of North Carolinians:
“With his delay in regards to the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, Governor Cooper is showcasing yet another example of allowing North Carolinians to suffer for his apparent political agenda, even at the cost of millions of dollars to the Tar Heel State. In 2016, he refused to defend our state while we were being economically boycotted to the tune of billions of dollars and now he is trying to hold us as political hostages again. Governor Cooper needs to know that the more than one million North Carolinians out of work are more important than his agenda."
