N.C. Democrats Shutout Media At Convention In New Bern

Members of the news media were turned away Friday night in New Bern as Democrats gathered for their state convention.

The three day convention kicked off at the Firemen's Museum with what a media advisory described as an opening reception. When WITN and other media organizations, some from Raleigh showed up, we were told it was a private fundraiser and were not allowed inside.

The N.C. Democratic Party website describes Friday's event as a reception. It does not mention it would be closed to the media. Calls and messages to communications director Kara Bolton for clarification were not returned.

The convention continues through Sunday in New Bern where party officials will elect delegates to the National Convention.
