Jim Black, the former speaker of the North Carolina House, has turned in his optometric license. Black, now serving time in federal prison on corruption charges, might be able to get his license back after completing his sentence, his attorney says.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
