GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Republican Pat McCrory is ready to unfurl his bid for North Carolina governor, even though he doesn’t know for sure who his Democratic opponent will be.

The former Charlotte mayor and 2008 runner-up for governor formally kicks off his campaign Tuesday evening with an event in Guilford County, where he spent much of his childhood.

It appeared for the past year that McCrory and Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue were headed for a rematch in 2012, but Perdue announced last week she wouldn’t seek re-election. Two Democrats have already jumped into their party’s race, and more are possible.

McCrory said Monday that Perdue’s absence won’t change his campaign and strategy. He said the Democrats interested in running all have helped enable a dozen years of poor policies.
