NC governor candidate McCrory respects Romney
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – The leading Republican candidate for
North Carolina governor says it’s time for Republicans to focus
upon defeating President Barack Obama – rather than upon each other
– after Mitt Romney swept three presidential primaries earlier this
Former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory told The Charlotte Observer
on Wednesday the former Massachusetts
governor “would make an excellent president” but stopped short of
telling other GOP presidential hopefuls to drop out.
McCrory said he hasn’t yet endorsed Romney but has a great deal
of respect for him. The pair served on a federal homeland security
advisory council during President George W. Bush’s administration.
North Carolina’s presidential preference primary is May 8 – the
same day McCrory is on the ballot as one of six GOP candidates
seeking the gubernatorial nomination.
