who was not seeking re-election. He defeated Democrat Lloyd Scher by a fator of 58,278 to 44,330.[6] Following release of video showing protesters shouting "shame" at former North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory during protests in Washington D.C., Bishop stated that he supported legislation that would criminalize such political behavior. Critics have called the proposed action antithetical to First Amendment principles. [7] References[edit]
