Democratic Presidential nominee and former First Lady Hillary Clinton voiced her support for the NCAA’s decision to pull tournament games from the state of North Carolina over the controversial HB2 law.

The decision has been lauded by many, and it may be what finally gets the North Carolina lawmakers to amend or eliminate a bill that legalizes discrimination against the LGBT community.

The next step will be to see in the ACC opts to remove their postseason events — future conference tournaments and football’s conference championship game — from the state. That is not a decision that Mark Emmert will push for, but it is one that appears to be coming down the pipeline.
