Clinton: Right to Vote Is ‘Under Attack’ Here in North Carolina
CLINTON: "It's one of the great gifts of our democracy, that we have the opportunity to choose our leaders. And people--brave people, going back for so many years, have fought to preserve that right and that right is under attack right now, and it is under attack in North Carolina of all places. A State that often set the standard for moving everybody into the future, and I admire that so much. Emphasis on education, from literally preschool to college; emphasis on research, emphasis on job creation and innovation. And now North Carolina, under the current Governor and legislature, has been trying to restrict people's right to vote. Well, you know it though - North Carolina's voters won an important victory, and the federal court just struck down this State's voter ID law."
