GOP nominates bigoted author of 'bathroom bill' in key House race

By Emily Singer -

Republican state Sen. Dan Bishop authored the anti-transgender 'bathroom bill' that embarrassed North Carolina and cost millions in lost business.

Republicans chose their nominee in a key special election in North Carolina's 9th District: a GOP state legislator who authored North Carolina's "bathroom bill" the bigoted, anti-transgender legislation that Republicans were forced to revoke after it embarrassed the state and cost it millions in lost revenue.

State Sen. Dan Bishop defeated a handful of other Republicans on Tuesday to win the nomination for the special election which is only necessary thanks to Republican election fraud that invalidated the 2018 results.

That leaves Republicans defending themselves against two scandals in the upcoming special election, which will take place on Sept. 10.

There's precedent that the bathroom bill Bishop sponsored which would have forced transgender individuals to use the bathroom of their gender at birth, and would have banned localities in the state from enacting protections for the LGBTQ community has hurt GOP politicians in the state.
