RALEIGH As Republicans appear set to retain supermajorities in the North Carolina General Assembly, Speaker of the House Tim Moore (R-Kings Mountain) thinks the results are confirmation of a job well done.”North Carolina has always been, in my opinion, a relatively conservative state, and the G.A. has gone in a conservative direction, not in an extreme direction, but a conservative direction,” said Moore. “I think the fact the voters voted the way they did to maintain our supermajority is proof that we are completely in step with the majority of North Carolinians.”As far as the legislative priorities going forward, Moore feels, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.””So we’re going to continue to build on the success we’ve had lowering taxes, putting more North Carolinians to work, improving education, focusing on the issues that are most important to North Carolinians.”Overall, it is shaping up to be a good night for Republicans up and down the ballot across the Old North State.
