From the article:
"There's probably another reason: The decline in early voting among black voters is likely a result of yearslong efforts by North Carolina's Republican officials and political operatives to impose voting restrictions in the state. Emails obtained last week by Reuters showed that Republican officials pushed successfully to restrict early voting sites and cut down on early voting on Sundays, when many black churches hold "Souls to the Polls" mass voting drives. During a major voting rights lawsuit decided in July, the 4th Circuit Courts of Appeals noted that the state eliminated Sunday voting specifically because the voters who used it were "disproportionately" black and Democratic."
Bingo.N.C. GOP said no such thing. The GOP press release even explained that the lack of interest among African-Americans resulted in less early voting. Ma Jones offered no reason when they claimed that the GOP engaged in voter intimidation. It's easy to see that it's another waaaah, waaaah lie by the incoherent left and they still can't understand why they lost.
