Democrats are favored in the open North Carolina governor's race, but that might change if the Democratic primary between Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue and State Treasurer Richard Moore gets ugly. There are some signs that's happening over the issue of out-of-state fundraising. From the News & Observer:
Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue raised money in New York on Wednesday -- a move that brought howls and charges of hypocrisy from State Treasurer Richard Moore.
In the race for governor, Perdue has sharply criticized Moore because he has taken lots of money from New York donors, many of whom work for investment firms that do business with the state pension fund, which is managed by the treasurer's office. Perdue is a candidate from "Main Street," not "Wall Street," she has said.
