The NAACP —and that means the Rev. William Barber —is asking the State Board of Elections to investigate and prosecute Sen. Phil Berger regarding his television ad that highlights his role passing a photo identification requirement to vote in person, claiming that it could discourage from citizens from voting in the November election;
Democrat Alma Adams and Republican Vince Coakley disagree on the federal government’s role during a 12th Congressional District candidates forum hosted by the League or Woman Voters of the Piedmont Triad.
Update: Berger modifies the ad to say “in 2016, thanks to Phil Berger, voters must show a photo ID.”
