McCrory Sworn In As Governor This Weekend

Jan 5, 2013

Republican Pat McCrory will officially become North Carolina's 74th governor today.

Jessica Jones: "Governor-elect McCrory has chosen to be sworn in early rather than wait a week for the state's traditional inauguration weekend. McCrory will be sworn in during midday ceremonies inside the old Capitol building in Raleigh. He will then give the oath of office to his cabinet of state department heads. McCrory wanted his official duties to start early before state lawmakers convene next week to choose their own leaders. Outgoing governor Bev Perdue is expected to take part in the ceremony. It will be broadcast on UNC-TV at noon."
