(AP) Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, supports the NCAA's decision to pull events from North Carolina.


NCAA President Mark Emmert tells The Associated Press the financial impact on the association for moving championship events and tournaments out of North Carolina on short notice has yet to be determined.

"It'll cost some money and, of course, North Carolina is a great venue and always has a lot of fans," Emmert told The Associated Press in an interview.

"There will be some financial impact for the association, but the board is well aware of that and they recognize the issue was more important than the finances."

Emmert said no new sites for the seven pulled events have been identified yet, and he has not set a deadline on replacements venues being picked. But he said his staff is working aggressively to relocate events.
