North Carolina Dem Gov Roy Cooper To Kick Off His Re-Election Campaign In…New York City?

Instead of launching his re-election candidacy in North Carolina, Democrat Governor Roy Cooper is planning to kick off his campaign at a New York City fundraiser led by a top Obama donor.

The News & Observer reports that Cooper will hold a “re-election kickoff event” in the New York City home of Nik Mittal, an investment fund manager and Barack Obama donor. The Democrat fundraising site ActBlue is accepting donations on the Cooper campaign’s behalf to attend the event for $5,400 per chair.

Cooper’s decision to announce his re-election candidacy with his big-money New York City donors instead of North Carolina voters proves that he is too out of touch to lead.
