Mark our words: Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory's going to get the Republican nomination for governor. It's going to happen because on May 6th the conservative vote is going to fracture all over the place, among Fred Smith, Bob Orr, and Bill Graham, and McCrory will walk away with it. The "liberal" Pat McCrory.
And then Bev Perdue will be in a heap o' trouble come November. Those fabled winds of change will favor McCrory.
