Ken Spaulding: Retry police officer who shot to death a young black man

Spaulding has been calling out Roy Cooper on a number of issues, especially the attorney general's decision not to retry a Charlotte police officer who shot to death a young black man, after a jury deadlocked 8-4 for acquittal. "I am not looking for anyone, whether black or white, to vote for me because I'm African-American," he said. "I'm looking for North Carolinians to vote for me because I am the best qualified and capable candidate, who can help pull this state back together."
