Virginia Governor To Attend McCrory's Inauguration

Jan 11, 2013

North Carolina's new Republican governor will have a fellow G-O-P chief executive at his public swearing in ceremony tomorrow.

Virginia governor Bob McDonnell will travel across the border to watch Pat McCrory and others take oaths of office at a Saturday morning public ceremony. McDonnell's spokesman confirmed today the governor will be in Raleigh for the inaugural event. As McCrory sought the office, McDonnell offered support as chairman of the Republican Governors Association. That organization dumped millions of dollars into backing McCrory's candidacy. Its efforts helped make North Carolina the only state where a Republican flipped the office from Democratic control. McCrory is taking the oath of office for a second time. He officially became governor in an invitation-only ceremony last weekend
