AP takes a look at the North Carolina governor's race, where Republican Pat McCrory looks like a fairly good bet to pull off an upset over Democrat Beverly Perdue.
"(McCrory) threw a monkey wrench into the governor's race," said longtime state Democratic operative Brad Crone. "There was a general assumption that Perdue had the upper hand ... (but) it is truly up for grabs."
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
