As reported by The North State Journal:
A former Republican N.C. Supreme Court justice and GOP gubernatorial candidate has made frequent donations to Democrats and aligned with anti-Republican groups in recent years, according to campaign reports. Retired Associate Justice Robert F. Orr, first elected as a Republican in 1994, is now a fierce critic of the party and former President Donald Trump.
Orr’s largest donations to Democrats included President Joe Biden and two unsuccessful Democratic congressional candidates, Pat Timmons-Goodson and Dan McCready. He appeared on a fundraising invitation for McCready in 2019.
In the 2016 presidential election, Orr was a North Carolina delegate to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where he was pledged to support former Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Orr was also Kasich’s state campaign chairman.
