RALEIGH – Today the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has announced in a statement that they have “reluctantly voted to allow consideration of championship bids in North Carolina.”
Civitas President Francis De Luca said, “This announcement confirms that everyone wanted to put the bathroom debate behind them and that the boycott was nothing more than an act to appease the left. The reality is that HB 2 was never as controversial as the media and liberal activists wanted us to believe. The manufactured outrage was mainly a tool for democrats and their liberal allies to fundraise off of. We will be watching to see if the NCAA’s action matches their rhetoric.”
