RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The head of the group who complained to North Carolina election officials about Gov. Pat McCrory’s role in a pro-bond campaign also has formally raised similar questions about the campaign and a state House Democrat.
Progress North Carolina Action Executive Director Gerrick Brenner asked the State Board of Elections on Thursday to investigate whether a video posted by the Connect NC Committee featuring Rep. Ken Goodman of Richmond County is unlawful. A similar complaint about Connect NC and McCrory’s campaign was filed Wednesday.
Election rules prohibit certain coordination between a referendum committee and candidate for elected office.
Connect NC leaders have said the group has complied fully with elections board rules and guidelines.
The statewide $2 billion bond question is on the March 15 ballot.
