McCrory slams plan at health care rally

With signs that doubled as fans to keep cool, Charlotte opponents of the proposed public health care plan gathered Tuesday night as Mayor Pat McCrory denounced existing proposals.

“Being out here doesn’t mean we’re against reform,” he said to the 200 or so protesters in uptown Charlotte at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center Plaza. “We’re for the right kind of reform – there are viable solutions other than (the federal government) taking over our health care,” including tort reform and insurance reform, he said.

Gov. Beverly Perdue raised $17.8 million for her campaign, while her Republican opponent, Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory, raised $6.4 million.

According to the final campaign finance report filed with the State Board of Elections, Perdue raised $2.4 million from Oct. 19 to the end of the year. McCrory, who entered the race after his fellow Republican candidates were well under way, raised $1.1 million during the same period.

Straight-ticket votes hurt, McCrory says

RALEIGH – Pat McCrory, who lost a close election for governor last week, said yesterday that he was done in by a wave of straight-party Democratic voters motivated by Barack Obama.

Special Thanks to our Victory 08 Team

November 5, 2008

NC05 wishes that the circumstances were better this morning than they were last night. We know that you all worked very hard to make the turnout high and the election strong. In some counties, republicans won strong and turned out in amazing numbers. We experienced upsets in Alleghany, Surry, and Yadkin. We had narrow misses in Alexander and Ashe. It appears that Congresswoman Foxx actually increased her margin of victory in most counties over 2006 and some over 2004. We believe this is not only a testament to her hard work and conservative values, but also to the many of you who made phone calls, placed signs, sent emails. The 72 Hour Plan workedin our district, and it is all because of you. Special thanks to Thomas Coley and Kevin Turner who organized volunteers and lead the campaigns to GOTV. Without these fellas, many of our local parties would have been overwhelmed. While we do not have all the numbers it looks like even Pat McCrory won in all of our counties save one. In a difficult election year, the volunteers of the fifth district played well. Congratulations to Sarah Stevens, Darrell McCormick, Bill McGee, and Dale Folwell. We hope we see Dan Soucek back in 2010. Mark Hollo’s narrow loss is hard to swallow, and we congratulate him on a strong campaign. Dan Barrett, our esteemed leader fought an uphill battle, and he is to be commended.

As we move forward, North Carolina will no doubt see “change” as the nation does. The change we fear will not be for the better. As Republicans, we must continue to fight for conservative principles both morally and fiscally. County parties must begin to work more together and help each other lead. Our message needs to reach those of our younger generation, and education through technology is our only hope. We have a gap to bridge and a message to re-tune, but we will return. Municipal elections are only a year away, and theirs no time like the present.

A note from Pat McCrory

November 4, 2008


Over the past 72 hours I’ve traveled across the state and held rallies in Graham, Concord, Yadkinville, Clemmons, Salisbury, Jamestown, Lexington, Raleigh, Asheville, Greenville and Charlotte. I have been overwheled by the enthusastic crowds that have greeted me at each stop, and can really feel the momentum heading into election day. Thank you for your tremendous support.

The other side is turning out in record numbers, and now is the time to get out there and vote. Each and every vote counts, and this election could be decided by as few as one vote per precinct…it is really that close! Let’s show state government that we want to end a culture of corruption and arrogance, and restore a sense of public service back to the halls of the state capitol. Join me in voting tomorrow, November 4th.

I ask for your prayers, continued support, and for your vote.

Thank you,


McCrory campaigns in Clemmons, rebuffs ads

CLEMMONS – Pat McCrory headed down the final stretch of his run for governor yesterday by painting his opponent, Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue, as a member of a “power elite” that needs to have its grip on the state broken.

What Lies Beneath?

Rural Roads:
Pat McCrory won’t pave roads in rural areas.

According to the News & Observer, “the claim that McCrory questioned whether rural roads should be paved is a stretch. In 2000, at a meeting of North Carolina mayors, McCrory said that the state’s policy of building paved roads to every community encourages sprawl, according to an Associated Press account.”  The N&O article continued, “Is it accurate? Not entirely. The ad makes a leap in claiming that McCrory questions whether rural roads should be paved. It’s true that he has lobbied for more road funding for metropolitan areas, particularly Charlotte.”

The truth is that Pat McCrory wants to remove the politics from transportation decisions and put an end to the “old-style” politics of pitting one region against another.  McCrory has pledged as Governor to transform DOT and to develop a 25-50 year transportation plan that takes into account the needs and expected future needs of the entire state.
