Perdue's birthday celebration drawing criticism


A majority of North Carolinians think our new governor is doing a good job so far. But a high-dollar reception celebrating her birthday Thursday night is drawing some criticism. The North Carolina Democratic Party said it threw the party to honor Perdue. The invitation asked partygoers to give anywhere from $500 to $10,000 to the state Democratic Party. Now, some are concerned the Democrats are going to use the donations to pay off Perdue's more than $900,000 loan to her campaign.
