SEANC Withholds Endorsement For Governor

The State Employees Association of North Carolina is not making an endorsement for governor.

Gurnal Scott: The organization representing more than 50,000 state employees and retirees is holding back its support..and perhaps more importantly..its money from Democrat Walter Dalton, Republican Pat McCrory and Libertarian Barbara Howe.

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.

McCrory Campaign Raises $2.2 M In 2nd Quarter

Republican Pat McCrory's gubernatorial campaign reported its campaign funding for the second quarter today. His campaign committee announced it had raised over 2.2 million dollars during the second quarter of 2012. Brian Nick is a spokesman for the McCrory campaign.

Brian Nick: What some people may not know is he was vastly outspent in the 2008 election by Governor Perdue. And so to have the kind of resources on hand in this election to be able to get his message out is a very important thing so he isn't massively outspent like he was last time.
