Former Charlotte mayor Pat McCrory, the NCGOP’s messiah, is not exactly inflaming conservative passions:
Former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory filed for governor Wednesday, promising to “fix this broken government and this broken economy.”
He also began to put some small breathing space between himself and the Republican legislature, saying he did not approve of its post-midnight session held last month. “I prefer all sessions to be at times when people are alert,” McCrory said.
But McCrory said he agreed with the action of the GOP legislature in ending dues checkoffs for members of the N.C. Association of Educators. The action was taken in a specially called session of the legislature that took place after midnight.
He said there were probably “several other examples” of where he differed with the GOP legislature, but he said he would lay them out as the campaign went on. Overall, McCrory said, “there are very few issues I disagree with.”
