No. 2 NC Democrat steps down, cites differences with party leader

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The head of the North Carolina Democratic Party has refused to respond directly to criticism about him from the party's No. 2 leader as the first vice-chair announced her resignation.
    
State party Chairman Randy Voller said Tuesday in an email he was sad to hear that Nina Szlosberg-Landis was stepping down from her position after just four months. Voller says she served the party with "grace, distinction and competence" and she will always be welcome at party headquarters.
    
Szlosberg-Landis wrote party leaders Monday night that she thinks Voller is not interested in raising money for the party and in creating an environment of trust, transparency and accountability within it.
    
A party spokesman says Voller will not comment on those specific accusations and will avoid engaging in personal attacks.

According to The Independent, Szlosberg-Landis wrote supporters, "I have been very concerned about the direction and practices of the new Chairman. You have likely heard or read about some of the more public missteps, and I felt that I could not accomplish the work I know needs to be done if I remained associated with him."

The move continues the disarray of the Democratic Party, which has long dominated North Carolina politics but now finds itself on the outside. The Republicans have vast majorities in both houses of the General Assembly as well as Gov. Pat McCrory.
