WRAL: ‘Thankful Tuesday’ rally shows support for GOP agenda

Here’s an excerpt from the WRAL article:

About 200 supporters expressed their appreciation Tuesday for North Carolina Republicans’ efforts to cut taxes, require identification before voting and make getting abortions more difficult.

Republican groups organized a “Thankful Tuesday” rally at the government complex in Raleigh to praise the GOP-led legislature and Gov. Pat McCrory for their work passing conservative policies. …

State GOP leaders said the rally was not intended to mirror or compete with the “Moral Monday” protests.

However, the GOP protesters were invited to a reception in the rotunda of the old state Capitol – an invitation not yet extended to those attending “Moral Monday” events.
