Dalton rolls out endorsement list for NC governor


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton says he has the support of more than 100 current and former elected officials in his bid for North Carolina governor.

Dalton highlighted the endorsements Tuesday in a prepared statement. He is one of six Democrats seeking the party's nomination in May. Former US Rep. Bob Etheridge and current state Rep. Bill Faison are the other leading candidates.

Dalton says former lieutenant governors Bob Jordan and Pat Taylor back him, as does former Senate leader Marc Basnight. He also counts the support of state lawmakers, mayors, county commissioners and sheriffs.

In our area, Dalton said he's received endorsements from Rep. Susi Hamilton, Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo and New Hanover County Commissioner Jonathan Barfield.
