Gov. Perdue says feds now investigating her campaign


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue says there is a federal investigation into her 2008 campaign.

Perdue said in a statement issued Friday that she has tried her best to abide by all laws. She said it would be inappropriate to make additional comments.

North Carolina's State Bureau of Investigation has already opened its own probe into Perdue after the district attorney in Wake County said he had lingering questions about her campaign's airplane flights.

The State Board of Elections fined Perdue's campaign $30,000 in August for failing to report in a timely fashion private flights. A majority of the board found no deliberate effort to break the law.

Perdue issued her statement shortly after The News & Observer of Raleigh reported subpoenas have been issued in the probe.
