Pat McCrory ‘100 percent’ in for NC governor

RALEIGH (The Rocky Mount Telegram) – Republican Pat McCrory confirmed Monday what’s been the least-disguised decision in North Carolina politics for months — the former Charlotte mayor is running for governor again.

The GOP’s 2008 gubernatorial nominee said he’s “100 percent committed” to seek the Republican nomination in May. McCrory lost to Democrat Bev Perdue in 2008 in the closest general election for the job in 36 years. A rematch seems to be the most likely outcome in 2012.

McCrory said this fall he’d say something about his plans early next year and confirmed Monday that an official announcement would still be forthcoming. Details haven’t been squared away. But McCrory said he wanted to make clear his intentions.
