"The ACC is placing the Obama political agenda above the hard working people and businesses of Charlotte. While siding with Hollywood and a handful of entertainers, the ACC is ignoring the privacy and safety concerns of parents and children.
"I commend North Carolina Governor McCrory for his courage and moral clarity in not caving in to the ACC's threats to move the championship game. After weathering the storm -- and picking up millions of allies -- North Carolina isn't about to flinch just because sports leagues like the ACC and the NCAA are beholden to the Left's cultural bullies.
"What could be more inclusive than letting businesses and private organizations set their own policies on bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms? That's what H.B. 2 does: respects the opinions of everyone, instead of using the government to punish non-conformers.
"The American people are tired of political correctness and political agendas being placed above everything else. It's time the ACC and its leaders, like Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson, get back to focusing on sports, not redefining what it means to be male or female," concluded Perkins.
