McCrory Prepares To Challenge Perdue

It's also worth noting that McCrory's long tenure as mayor of the city hosting the Democratic National Convention in 2012 could present an interesting dynamic if he runs. He may claim credit for positive developments in the city that may potentially be highlighted by Democrats. He's also likely to continue to remind voters of North Carolina's status as a right to work state, a sore spot for organized labor. He signaled his willingness play offense on both fronts in a recent interview. "There's two things they won't tell the national audience," McCrory told the Raleigh Telegram. "One is that this city actually had a Republican mayor for the last 14 years. ... And the second thing the president won't tell you is they're in a right-to-work city in a right-to-work state. And by God, it's gonna stay that way."
