Greetings from Durham County, North Carolina, a blue zone where even some GOP voters recognize Donald Trump for the con man he is

The North Carolina Republican Party opposed extending voting hours for the entire county. In a statement, Thomas Stark, the party’s general counsel, said the “brief period of known voting interruption” had been resolved promptly by local election workers, and he said there was no evidence to justify extending hours for the whole county.
