Perdue consultant Marc Farinella acted as if the two are already facing off, in a statement. "We are gratified by the support that Governor Perdue has received from the citizens of North Carolina, and we believe that the majority of North Carolinians share Governor Perdue's aspirations for the state much more so than they do Mr. McCrory's," said Farinella. "Let me also add that, quite frankly, we are a little surprised that McCrory didn't raise more. We were expecting a higher number from him given all the fundraising he's been doing over the past six months. We are pleased and satisfied with the result." -- Julie Sobel contributed
