Former state senator and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate  Erica Smith endorsed calls for the expansion of the U.S. Supreme Court.. 


"An illegitimate court (Neil Gorsuch & Amy Coney Barrett sit in stolen seats) is reviewing a law that was written by an illegitimate legislature and signed by an illegitimate Governor. Two men, Brett Kavanaugh and  Clarence Thomas who've been credibly accused of sexual misconduct may very well end the freedom of every woman, and childbearing person, in this country to make their own choices about their own body.
"While I urge the Supreme Court to overturn the Texas abortion ban, and Congress to codify Roe, I know that more is needed. Republicans have rigged the system, and packed the courts, so that corporations and dangerous ideologues can have their way. Given that our Democracy and our livelihoods are on the line, it's alarming that the other candidates in this primary have attacked and diminished the idea of expanding the court. We must meet this moment by expanding the number of seats on the Supreme Court. It's the end of voting rights for Black and Brown communities, or it's expanding the court. It's our politicians being owned by dark money, or it's expanding the court. It's the end of Roe v. Wade and reproductive rights, or it's expanding the court.
"Expand the Supreme Court."

RALEIGH - The North Carolina Democratic Party says it's started running a television ad criticizing Republican leaders at the General Assembly for passing laws that hurt women on issues from abortion and child care to Medicaid and the public schools.


The state party said Tuesday the 60-second commercial is running on cable TV in the Charlotte and Raleigh markets. A party spokesman declined to say how much money is being spent on the ad. An email sent to party supporters asked for more donations to keep the ad running.


The ad features Governor Beverly Perdue, state legislators and former Cabinet secretary and longtime party activist Betty McCain, who said "the GOP has declared war on women." The ad includes footage of Republican House leaders Thom Tillis and Paul Stam.
