When Gov. Pat McCrory appointed gerrymandered map drawer and right-wing campaign and propaganda machine funder Art Pope as deputy state budget director, it seemed appropriate to consider McCrory as not only governor, but also the top elected official in the new Pope administration.

That was a mistake and unfair. It’s become obvious in the last couple of weeks that McCrory is not the second most powerful person in Raleigh. He’s third, maybe fourth, definitely behind Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger and maybe also less powerful than House Speaker Thom Tillis.
