    Updated:

    RALEIGH, N.C. - For the first time on Tuesday night, Gov. Pat McCrory talked about the massive protests at the state capital over Republican policies.

    "They want to keep the status quo. I am not in favor of keeping the status quo. We have got to fix broken operations in the state government, and in order to do that, I am stepping on the toes of the right, the left, the middle," said McCrory.

    Over the past four Monday's police have arrested 158 people who said lawmakers are passing bills that hurt minorities and poor people.

    Since next Monday is holiday, the General Assembly will not be in session.

    So the NAACP said it will kick off a statewide tour to recruit more protestors.
