Republican leaders statewide have had their fill and speak out
At their district meeting last evening, the elected precinct committeemen of Legislative District 15 voted 54 – 5 to issue a vote of “No Confidence” in their state Rep. Heather Carter.
The Motion read: We issue a vote of no confidence on Representative Heather Carter, because of her support of HB 2010 “The Medicaid Expansion.” She did this in direct opposition to the overwhelming majority of LD 15 Precinct Committeemen.
