Extremist Republican candidate for NC Superintendent went to Capitol on January 6 “to take back America”

If you hear her tell it, North Carolina’s extreme right wing Republican candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction didn’t really go to the Capitol on January 6, 2021 to participate in an insurrection. Rather, Morrow, who home schools her kids, said in a candidate forum during her 2022 failed run for Wake County school board that she wanted to teach her children “a lesson about citizens’ role in a democracy.”

You know, kind of like a homeschool field trip.

But the video Morrow shot that day paints a very different picture. In it, Morrow says she’s doing this “because our president asked us to come,” adding “We are here to take back America. We are here to stop the steal. We are here to ensure President Trump gets four more years.”

Take a look for yourself:

Morrow upset Republican incumbent Catherine Truitt in Tuesday’s primary. She will face Democrat Mo Green in November’s general election to determine who’s in charge of K-12 education in North Carolina.
