When North Carolina voters elect their next governor, they will choose from two intelligent, experienced politicians, Lieutenant Gov. Walter Dalton, a Democrat, and former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory, a Republican. We believe that McCory is the best qualified candidate because of his superior leadership skills and experience.

There is reason to fear that McCrory will cater to the radical right wing of the Republican Party that often reared its head in the 2011-12 General Assembly. McCrory is conservative, but he is also pragmatic. He showed that during his seven two-year terms as mayor, and he demonstrated a willingness to think outside of the often very narrow box under which this state’s politicians labor. This was especially the case when he worked for a light-rail system for his city.
