The Raleigh News & Observer references this story in it editorial to explain how Republican claims of a roaring North Carolina economy do not mesh with the reality for many people across the state. "The problem Republicans have in selling North Carolinians on the idea that things are great and people are better off is that it’s not true where most North Carolinians live," says the N&O.
