Another GOP candidate files for NC governor’s race

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Republican gubernatorial candidate Pat
McCrory’s first primary opponent hasn’t been in elected office
before and believes local government property taxes should be
replaced with some other revenue source.

Fayetteville resident Jim Harney filed Wednesday to run as a GOP
candidate for governor. His entry means McCrory will have to run
some kind of campaign for the May 8 primary.

Harney said in a phone interview he runs a promotional
advertising business and was discouraged from running as an
independent because he would have needed so many signatures to get
on the ballot.

McCrory has been considered the presumptive GOP nominee and
spent the past several months trying to clear the field of
high-profile candidates through speeches to party groups and
fundraising.
