Trump, McCrory to meet Wednesday
Posted December 6, 2016
RALEIGH, N.C. — Outgoing North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory has a date to meet with Donald Trump as the president-elect continues to fill positions in his upcoming administration.
Trump transition team officials told reporters Tuesday that McCrory would meet Trump in New York on Wednesday.
A source close to McCrory said McCrory could be in line to become director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency or to be named to a top-level appointment at the Department of Energy or the Department of Transportation.
McCrory conceded to Democrat Roy Cooper on Monday after a Durham County recount still gave Cooper a lead of just over 10,000 votes from 4.7 million cast.
McCrory supported Trump during the presidential campaign and spoke at his rallies. Trump was holding an event Tuesday in Fayetteville.
Trump already had tapped South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley as his choice for United Nations ambassador.
