State House Speaker Thom Tillis appeared on MSNBC Saturday afternoon to defend N.C. Republicans' push for a photo voter ID. He said the primary reason for the measure is to restore voter confidence, not document cases of actual fraud.
Lt. Gov. Dan Forest is the Republican Party's best shot to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, according to a new poll.
Republican House leaders said Tuesday that legislation requiring voters to present photo identification before casting a ballot will undergo weeks of deliberation and review before being filed in late March.
House leaders say the discussion over a state voter ID program could begin this coming week.
