Powell Blasts North Carolina Voting Law

With North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) in the audience, former Secretary of State Colin Powell took aim at the state's new voting law, "saying it hurts the Republican Party, punishes minority voters and makes it more difficult for everyone to vote," the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Said Powell: "I want to see policies that encourage every American to vote, not make it more difficult to vote."

He added: "It immediately turns off a voting block the Republican Party needs. These kinds of actions do not build on the base. It just turns people away."
