NC elections board to meet to certify most results

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — This year’s races for nearly all federal and state offices in North Carolina are almost officially over.

The State Board of Elections is scheduled to meet Tuesday to certify the results of the Nov. 6 election, but a few races are still incomplete because of pending recounts. They include the 7th Congressional District race between Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre and Republican challenger David Rouzer.

The outstanding races will be certified later by the board.

The final results are expected to bring North Carolina’s electoral votes to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who edged national winner Barack Obama in the state by about 2 percentage points. The GOP’s Pat McCrory will be the next governor after defeating Democrat Walter Dalton by 11 percentage points.

NAACP to discuss Wilmington 10 prosecutor’s notes

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The president of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP says newly discovered notes by the prosecutor in the Wilmington 10 case show he engaged in racial profiling to select 12 people more likely to convict.

The Rev. William Barber will hold a news conference Tuesday in Raleigh to discuss the notes taken by Jay Stroud in the case involving the burning of a white-owned grocery store after a police officer shot and killed a black teenager.

Ten activists were convicted of the arson in 1972 and jailed until being set free in 1980, when the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, VA, overturned the convictions.

The NAACP and other groups are asking Gov. Bev Perdue to pardon the activists before she leaves office in early January.
