Few political leaders distinguished themselves in the lacrosse case, but one of the heroes of the affair was Attorney General Roy Cooper. His office conducted an impartial investigation, free from political pressure, and allowed the facts to dictate the outcome. He was, in short, the model of a "minister of justice."
Cooper's campaign is up with an ad reminding voters of his actions in the case.
While, I suspect, Cooper won't poll well among the Group of 88, I hope that all DIW readers in North Carolina will vote for him on November 4. Donations to his campaign can be made here.
