McCrory Makes Campaign Stop In Cary
Republican Pat McCrory brought his campaign for governor to the Triangle yesterday.
Pat McCrory: I need your help. This is going to be a fight.
Gurnal Scott: Some of McCrory's supporters who came to see him in Cary may find that hard to believe. New numbers from left-leaning Public Policy polling show him with a seven-point lead on Democratic candidate Walter Dalton. McCrory took time to talk his goals should he win in November. He says a top priority is creating opportunities for people to find jobs.
Pat McCrory: We need to think of incentives to give to people to go out an be more agressive in their job search.
McCrory's opponent says people need more help than that in the form of recruitment. A spokesman for the Dalton campaign criticizes McCrory for being "against competing with other states for jobs."
