Gov. Roy Cooper and Democrats in the state legislature continue to make a lot of noise about repealing House Bill 2 (HB2), the bathroom bill.  But the fact is that when a straight up or down vote on repealing HB2 was put before the state Senate, only 16 senators voted for it and all 16 were Republicans.  According to one Democratic state senator, the reason the Democrats all voted against a bill they had previously claimed to support was that Cooper told them to vote against it.
