Governors from SC, Maryland help in NC campaign

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

More out of state governors are coming to North Carolina to support both Pat McCrory and Walter Dalton.

South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley crossed the state line to speak at a rally Wednesday afternoon with McCrory at the North Carolina Veterans Park visitor center in Fayetteville.

McCrory got help in his campaign against Democrat Walter Dalton last week from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who attended a rally in Salisbury and attended a Charlotte fundraiser. McCrory's campaign said Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will make at least two campaign stops with McCrory next Tuesday.

Dalton will get his own help from an outside governor Thursday as Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley will campaign with the lieutenant governor in Greensboro and Raleigh.

Dalton was also in Durham Wednesday as first lady Michelle Obama spoke to North Carolina Central University students.
