McCrory to headline Wake GOP event

Posted January 19, 2012

Republican gubernatorial hopeful Pat McCrory will be the keynote speaker at the Wake GOP's 2012 precinct meeting in Raleigh next month.

Wake Republicans are calling the Feb. 16th meeting at Dorton Arena "Back to Basics." It's open to all registered Republicans in the county, but an RSVP is recommended. 

According to today's release about the meeting, attendees will choose precinct and House district officers for 2012, meet GOP candidates, and receive training on subjects ranging from social media to "Talking to Liberals." 

McCrory is scheduled to officially announce his candidacy for governor later this month in Greensboro. At present, he has no serious competition for the GOP nomination. The latest polls show the former Charlotte mayor holding a double-digit lead over incumbent Democrat Gov. Bev Perdue.

    jlp...You may be right about the suit but at this time my friend we have an occupier in the Gov's office with an empty head. Lesser of two evils perhaps?

    Who cares? Just an empty suit.
