Thursday evening, January 18th, while most of central North Carolina was enjoying the second of two beautiful snow days, the US Supreme Court issued a stay that allows North Carolina to hold elections as scheduled for its congressional districts that were ruled unconstitutional recently by a lower court. North Carolina Republicans are still hoping for a similar action regarding its state legislative districts so there is still uncertainty surrounding NC 2018 elections.

 

Below is an article about the action as well as statements from the North Carolina Republican Party and the North Carolina Democratic Party.
