North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) on Monday signed into law one of the nation’s most wide-ranging Voter ID laws.
The move is likely to touch off a major court battle over voting rights, and the Justice Department is weighing a challenge to the new law, which is the first to pass since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the Voting Rights Act.
The measure requires voters to present government-issued photo identification at the polls and shortens the early voting period from 17 to 10 days. It will also end pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-old voters who will be 18 on Election Day and eliminates read more

Rep. Tim Scott, a South Carolina Republican backed by tea-party groups, made history Monday when he was appointed to fill the seat of departing Sen. Jim DeMint.
Mr. Scott, who will be the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction, instantly became the GOP’s highest-profile African-American, as the party isn’t represented by any other black members of Congress or any black governors.
South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley said she chose Mr. Scott because he was a successful small-business man and fiscal conservative with the same philosophy as Mr. DeMint.
Ms. Haley said it was important to her as an Indian-American to say that she chose Mr. Scott for his merits, adding that he “earned this seat for the person that he is.”
Mr. Scott said he would seek to uphold Mr. DeMint’s record, and shares his hard-line approach on negotiations on the fiscal cliff, looming year-end spending cuts and tax increases. Mr. Scott said raising taxes on the nation’s wealthiest people would damage business owners and cause jobs to be lost.
“That’s not the right direction,” he said. read more
