Gov. Roy Cooper (D) wrote a letter to President Trump that “states the shutdown should end so North Carolina can continue to rebuild from hurricane flood waters and prevent future damage.”

Cooper: “While we continue short-term recovery help with FEMA's help, our critical long-term work to rebuild stronger and smarter is delayed with every day that federal funds are held in Washington.” (AP)
