Charlotte Mayor & Republican gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory has hired Jack Hawke, late of the Civitas Institute and a major operative for right-wing candidates, to remake him as a conservative in the Republican primary May 6th. Jack Hawke also helped Virginia Foxx in 2004, remaking her as a human facsimile.
It was bound to happen. McCrory couldn't win the primary running as himself, a moderate Republican big-city mayor with visions of public transportation.
Call it The Romney Syndrome. And look for Mittens McCrory to become Pat the Fire-Breather.
