North Carolina Legislature Overrides Veto of “Sore Loser” Bill, so it is Now Law

On June 20, the North Carolina legislature overrode the veto of SB 486, so it is now law. It makes it illegal for a party that nominates by convention to nominate someone who had earlier that year run in a primary of another party for the same office.
The Constitution Party already nominated three such individuals, and because the party did so before the “sore loser” law was in effect, there is no clarity as to whether the three candidates can appear on the November ballot.
