Republican leaders in North Carolina are criticizing Winston-Salem State University after its office of student affairs sent all students and employees an e-mail, drafted by a student, urging support for Democrats in November's election, The Winston-Salem Journal reported. University officials said that an official did not review the student's e-mail before sending it out, and that it was a mistake to forward a political message of that nature to everyone at the university. The university has apologized and sent out an "equal time" e-mail on behalf of Republicans.
