A federal appeals court decision to block North Carolina’s restrictive voter ID law certainly is a victory for voting rights.

As Democrats and Republicans actively contest North Carolina’s governorship, U.S. Senate seat and 15 electoral votes for president this fall, don’t expect them to ignore other races on the ballot.

It was very disappointing to me to see the Dallas police chief come on the air after the tragedy and start reading the messages that the gunman had sent.

I don't think he should have a platform to make known his views even postmortem. I don't care about anything that he has to say.

I cast an enthusiastic vote for Barack Obama in 2008 and then I cast it again in 2012.

I might vote for Hillary Clinton -- I don't know ye t--  but it will not be enthusiastically.

Donald Trump is not for the black man on Peachtree Street with all those signs in his yard.

Donald Trump's honesty only shows his true racism.
