Rain did not deter demonstrators who turned out in large numbers Monday to protest the end of extended federal unemployment benefits for North Carolina’s long-term jobless. Many of those at the rally also spoke out against a voter identification bill, which is expected to be placed on the fast-track in the Senate later this week.
