Fun news from North Carolina

The Democrats there seem to be intelligent and rational.
From Raleigh station WGHP:

North Carolina Rep. Tricia Cotham switches to Republican party, says Democratic party ‘has become unrecognizable’
A sitting North Carolina state representative, who was elected as a Democrat, is leaving the party and becoming a Republican, a move that grants the GOP the outright legislative supermajority needed to override vetos from the governor’s office.

Rep. Tricia Cotham, who represents a Democrat-dominant district in Mecklenburg County, announced her switch on Wednesday. North Carolina House Speaker Rep. Tim Moore, Senate President pro tempore Phil Berger and others joined her and welcomed her to the party and the Republican caucus.

Cotham said the “modern-day Democratic party has become unrecognizable to me and others across the state.”

She switched parties to escape the pressure she said she faced to vote with the Democratic caucus, declaring, “I will not be controlled by anyone.”

Been following the state politics for a while and it seems to be really balanced.
Some partisanship but this is limited to a few people.
