    RALEIGH, N.C. - The North Carolina Democratic Party asked voters Wednesday to avoid shopping at dozens of discount retail stores whose parent company, owned by a conservative activist's family, injected hundreds of thousands of dollars into the fall elections to target Democrats.

The party's boycott of the company's North Carolina stores, mostly under the names of Roses, Maxway and...

    While the state Supreme Court decides whether new legislative districts are invalid because a clause in the state constitution bars the splitting of counties, House Democratic leaders are considering amending the constitution to delete the provision. House Speaker Jim Black, a Matthews Democrat, has been gauging support among members for putting a constitutional amendment on the ballot. One option that Black is discussing with legislators is to ask voters to delete the whole-county provision and approve a provision requiring all legislators to be in single-member districts. If necessary, such a move could be done in a special legislative session or...
