McCrory endorsed by NC Troopers Association


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A group representing the interests of Highway Patrol employees has endorsed Republican Pat McCrory for North Carolina governor this fall.

McCrory's campaign said the North Carolina Troopers Association endorsed the former Charlotte mayor over the weekend during his appearance at the group's family-focused picnic at Tweetsie Railroad in Blowing Rock.

Association president Ron Crawford is quoted in a McCrory campaign release that McCrory's experience as mayor and involvement with law enforcement issues makes him the right choice for the job.

Democratic Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton and Libertarian Barbara Howe also are running in November.

The North Carolina Association of Educators endorsed Dalton last week.
