McCrory enters governor's race, pledges to solve road-building woes

JAMESTOWN, N.C. (AP) -- Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory is running for governor. The Republican made his announcement today on the steps of a Jamestown library that once housed his elementary school. About 200 people stood with him, holding signs with messages of support. McCrory pledged to solve the state's road-building problems and make state government more attentive to citizens' needs. He also said he would work to keep career criminals in prison and rid the state's jails of illegal immigrants who had committed crimes. McCrory has less than four months to campaign before the May 6 primary. His four GOP opponents have been campaigning for several months. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press.

Fix the DOT, build roads

Fix the DOT, build roads where necessary without raising taxes, get rid of illegal immigrants in N.C., and keep those bad boys in jail and you have my vote 100%.
