Statement on Judicial Races

“The North Carolina Values Coalition congratulates Paul Newby for winning the race for Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court. We also congratulate Phil Berger, Jr. and Tamara Barringer for winning seats on the Supreme Court as Associate Justices. This begins to bring the state’s highest court into balance, so that the conservative legal principles embodied in our State’s Constitution and laws are not eroded by activism on the high court. We also congratulate April Wood, Fred Gore, Chris Dillon, Jeff Carpenter, and Jefferson Griffin who won election to the North Carolina Court of Appeals. Conservatives made a clean sweep of the appellate courts in our state this election, and we are thrilled that these judges are committed to enforcing the Constitution and laws of our state as written, without contorting the law to reach a desired result. Best wishes to all the justices and judges elected yesterday.”
