In Response To Concerns, NC Democratic Leader Puts Chavis Appointment On Hold

It'’s been a hectic week for the North Carolina Democratic Party, and it has nothing to do with the snow and ice.

It started Sunday (Feb. 9) when party Chairman Randy Voller fired his executive director.

It appeared that Voller was going to appoint former national NAACP Chairman Benjamin Chavis to the position.

The plan stirred considerable debate among party leaders and was put on hold after it was revealed by Gary Robertson of the Associated Press. Robertson spoke to WFAE's Kevin Kniestedt.
