State Treasurer Richard Moore 1st Dem in Race for Guv

Richard Moore made it official yesterday in the eastern N.C. town of Oxford, where he grew up. No other Democrats have formally entered the governor race yet. From the N&O coverage:

Moore's major campaign pledge was to expand access to health care to every North Carolinian. He said that emergency room visits by the uninsured and inadequate insurance for the working poor were a drag on the state's economy.

"You can't have a strong economy without affordable health care," he said.
