North Carolina, where Gov. Mike Easley is stepping down due to term limits, will host one of the few competitive gubernatorial races this year. The field is now nearly set with the early favorites leading in both party primaries.
Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue has a solid lead on the Democratic side. The GOP race looks like its heading to a June 24 runoff, with Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory outpacing state Sen. Fred Smith in the large GOP field. McCrory needs to exceed 40 percent to win outright. Update : McCrory got it.
Not surprisingly, given the attention to the presidential primary and voting trends this year, voting was much heavier among Democrats today.
