NC governor vetoes bill allowing a new primary in disputed House race

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) vetoed a bill on Friday that would restructure the state elections board and allow it to call a new primary in a disputed House race, citing concerns with a campaign finance provision.

But the North Carolina General Assembly is likely to try to override the veto after easily passing the legislation last week.

The bill would overhaul the current makeup of the State Board of Elections, which is currently investigating mounting fraud claims involving absentee ballots in the state’s contested House race in the 9th District.

It would also grant the state elections board power to order a new primary when calling for a new election.
