The Republican nominee for North Carolina attorney general on Monday cast the U.S. Department of Justice’s discrimination lawsuit against the state as federal overreach and social engineering in the twilight of President Barack Obama’s administration.

State Sen. Buck Newton, R-Wilson, said he stands with leaders in the Republican-controlled General Assembly committed to defending House Bill 2. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch sued the state, arguing that HB2’s restroom rules discriminate against transgender people on the basis of sex.

“This is no longer just a North Carolina issue,” Newton said. “The administration in its waning days has decided to go all-out and try to remake America.”
