Conservative Republican Candidate for North Carolina Governor, and current Lt. Governor, Dan Forest, released a blistering statement about the state of affairs, today, in North Carolina under Progressive Democrat Roy Cooper’s pandemic procedures.
“Governor Cooper’s long-delayed ‘no-plan’ plan for reopening schools fails our students and has left working-class parents across North Carolina scrambling to figure out how to juggle their jobs and child’s education. The Cooper Administration’s never-ending fear campaign ignores their own science and data on how (Disease That Must not Be Named) impacts young people,” Forest’s office wrote.
“He [Cooper] exposes our children to greater risks – not just falling further behind in their education, but for the mental and physical damage that isolation, hunger, and neglect will have on their well-being, specifically for our low-income and special needs students.
As many other states have already given families the option to either do virtual learning or get back into the classroom, it makes you wonder what is really going on here. As a state, we can protect our most vulnerable children, teachers, and school administrators, while getting the rest of our students back to school in a safe and responsible manner,” the Forest for Governor Press Release said.
Forest, a member of the Council of State, a board that has the legal authority Cooper has misused, has been steadfast about Cooper’s egregious power grab while the state has been under Pandemic concerns.

North Carolina is an important battleground state for the General Election in 2020, having gone, narrowly, for Trump in 2016.
The State lost the Republican National Convention that was long scheduled to be held in Charlotte North Carolina, due to Cooper’s demands for social distancing and reducing the attendance of the event, seemingly ignoring the needs and wishes of small business in the area who were hopeful for the stimulus the RNC convention would have given small business in the area.
The Republican National Convention, moved from North Carolina by Trump’s dismay with the state's COVID-19 restrictions, may be held as a large conference outdoors … in Florida … in August.https://t.co/7IWpgywuKO
