McCrory apparently standing up on one issue

Pat McCrory 2Raleigh’s News & Observer reports that Gov. McCrory has given a “thumbs down” on the proposal to re-legalize payday lending in North Carolina. Meanwhile over at the General Assembly, there’s no word whether bill sponsor Sen. Jerry Tillman slammed any doors when he heard the news, but reliable reports indicate that the Senator is, shall we say, seriously miffed at the Guv.

Let’s hope McCrory sticks to his position anyway and kills this nutty idea before it goes any further.

    They have the votes to override him on anything, even more than they had with Perdue (where they always needed a handful of turncoats). But they probably shouldn’t do it. It would just give him more Independent voters from the electorate at large.
