North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley released the following statement:
"In a move that shows where their loyalties truly lie, NCGA Democrats have chosen to side with the Governor over their own constituents. Teachers will go without raises they deserved and Roy Cooper has yet to sign a teacher pay raise into law. The Governor refused to negotiate in good faith and choose to listen to his campaign donors from New York instead of the people he's now hurting in North Carolina. Make no mistake: Cooper and legislative Democrats are responsible for this and they will be held accountable."
