The Roanoke Times has endorsed N. C. Governor McCrory for a second term because, as they say in the editorial, he’s been good for the economy–Virginia’s economy (follow the link for the full article).
. . . Pat McCrory, the Republican governor of North Carolina, who’s seeking his second four-year term in the November election. We can point to specific and multiple ways he has helped the economy — our economy. North Carolina panicked and made a spectacle of itself by passing HB2, its so-called “bathroom bill.” In response, various companies and even sports leagues pulled events from the state. Three of those have wound up in Salem — the NCAA Division III men’s and women’s soccer championships, as well as the Division II Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association football championship. That’s money in the bank for us.
Honest to Pete, you can’t make this stuff up.
