Attorney General Roy Cooper

The Orange County Democratic Party, in partnership with the Orange County Democratic Women, presents the Orange County Democratic Party’s 25th Annual Legislative Breakfast. Please join us as we work to re-elect Senator Kay Hagan and honor Orange County’s past and present legislators.

Roy Cooper was elected North Carolina’s Attorney General in 2000. He has since been re-elected three times. As attorney general, Cooper has used his office to increase consumer protection, protect children from online predators, lower utility bills, and reduce environmental pollution. In 2008, he won more votes than any other candidate in state history and 2012 he faced no primary or general election opposition.

Prior to being elected Attorney General Cooper served as a member of the North Carolina Senate, where he served as majority leader, and in the North Carolina House passing legislation reducing class sizes, increasing pay for teachers, giving victim rights through the Crime Victims Bill of Rights, and banning guns from schools.
