RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina Republican gubernatorial nominee Pat McCrory’s campaign is releasing his government travel information while Charlotte mayor in the name of transparency, but Democrats say he hasn’t been open enough about his private-sector work and income.
McCrory’s campaign provided expense details Thursday about trips he took while mayor from 1996 through 2009 and were paid for by the city. The events include things like state and national events with other mayors, transit conferences and homeland security meetings.
Democratic Party spokesman Walton Robinson called the records a distraction while McCrory refuses to release tax returns and more information about his work at a Charlotte business. Democratic nominee Walter Dalton has released his returns.
McCrory has said his returns are his private records and he’s disclosed financial information on an ethics form.
