CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Virginia's Republican governor is the latest to campaign in North Carolina in support of GOP candidate Pat McCrory's run for governor.
Gov. Bob McDonnell is joining McCrory in Charlotte on Thursday for a visit to a Coca-Cola bottling plant.
McDonnell is chairman of the Republican Governors Association, whose primary mission is helping to elect Republicans as governors. The group is holding a corporate policy summit in Charlotte on Thursday.
The RGA began a $865,000 TV ad campaign on Tuesday tying Democratic Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton to outgoing Gov. Bev Perdue, also a Democrat.
A string of Republican governors has visited North Carolina to boost McCrory's campaign, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
