McCrory Names Revamped NC Elections Board

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is putting his stamp on the board responsible for running elections and monitoring campaign finance reports statewide.

McCrory announced Friday he's appointing a new State Board of Elections. Three are Republicans and two are Democrats, a choice reflecting GOP control over state government.

The appointments take effect Wednesday, the day after the current, Democrat-led elections board votes on whether to open a campaign finance investigation into 2012 political donations from the operators of sweepstakes games.

The elections board's new Republican members will be lawyers Josh Howard of Wake County and Paul Foley of Forsyth County, and Rhonda Amoroso of New Hanover County.

Democratic Party members will be Joshua Malcolm of Robeson County and Maja Kricker of Chatham County. Both chair their county elections boards.
