  •  Leading NC Dem calls for Perdue to step aside (2+ / 0-)

    I see a primary challenge coming together. Rep Bill Faison, D-Orange:

    “You have all these indictments. And the focus of the governor’s office ought to be on the people and ought to be dealing with the economic crisis we got,” Faison said.

    “Clearly, the DA is saying that they’re still investigating this matter, so it’s not over. Clearly, the governor’s office is focused on those investigations and the consequences of them, and the focus ought to be on the people," he said.

    "So I think, ultimately, Gov. Perdue will do the right thing and decide not to run. I don’t believe you’ll ever see her file,” Faison said.

    Is he still interested in running for her job?

    “Well, I certainly think we need strong leadership at the top of the ticket, and I’m certainly giving consideration to it. That’s a decision for some time in the future.”

      If she does step aside how about a statewide official? Maybe Elaine Marshall or Janet Cowell?

        There are plenty of potential candidates. I think most would hesitate to challenge the sitting Governor, unfortunately.
