Perdue Will Appear With Obama at Ft. Bragg

December 14, 2011

North Carolina Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue announced on Tuesday that she will appear with President Obama when he travels to Ft. Bragg later this morning, ending the uncertainty over whether she would be on hand for the visit to her home state.

"I look forward to joining president Obama tomorrow to honor our troops and thank them for their service to our country and our state," Perdue said in a statement, according to the Raleigh News & Observer.

The last time Obama made a swing through the state, Perdue was not present (she was overseas on a trade mission in Asia.)

North Carolina will be an important swing state for the president's reelection team and the Democratic National Convention will be held in Charlotte next year. So it's difficult to imagine how Perdue can, in any effective way, dodge the president. Opponents will tie her to the president no matter what she does, so she's best served to appear with him when she can, especially since he has a fighting chance in the state.
