North Carolina lawmakers consider overriding elections bill veto

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina lawmakers are scheduled to consider overriding the governor’s veto of legislation he says would add secrecy to campaign finance investigations.

The Republican-controlled North Carolina House and Senate are meeting Thursday and are expected to discuss a veto override.

The elections bill would also require new primaries — not just a general election — in a disputed congressional race if the state elections board deems new voting is necessary.

That’s not the part Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper cited in his veto decision. Rather, he said he vetoed the bill because of a measure that would make future state elections board investigations of campaign finance allegations confidential.
