McCrory only a PR man for GOP legislative leaders?

It looks like Governor McCrory’s role in the big tax cut debate between House and Senate leaders might be merely to market what the legislative leaders come up with.
Here’s what House Speaker Thom Tillis told the News & Observer  about McCrory’s role in the discussion about a tax deal.
We need the governor fully on board so he can communicate it and get people to understand it.
That’s a bit of an odd take from Tillis. He didn’t say they need to work with the governor because he is running the state or because he is the top elected official of their own political party or heaven forbid, because he might have some policy ideas and strongly held views of his own about taxes.
No, they need the governor on board only to sell the package that Berger and Tillis decide on. It is pretty clear legislative leaders believe they are in charge in Raleigh these days. McCrory? He is their PR guy.
