In the North Carolina race for Senate, one of a handful that will decide control of the upper chamber, Democratic candidate Cal Cunningham has proudly touted his support of the #MeToo movement.
That makes his silence on Mr. Biden untenable, said North Carolina Republican Party spokeswoman Sasha Duncan.
“His handling of Tara Reade’s allegations is just further evidence that Cal Cunningham has no core convictions,” she said, adding that Mr. Cunningham backed the pro-women #MeToo movement only when it was politically advantageous.
The Cunningham campaign didn’t respond to a request for comment.
