Pearce: Misstatements, rocky relationship with the press mark McCrory’s first year (video)

As the year winds down, political observers are reflecting on Governor Pat McCrory’s first year in office.

Earlier this week, Charlotte Observer editorial page editor Taylor Batten took McCrory to task for his misstatements and his constant complaining about his treatment by the state’s media.

This weekend on NC Policy Watch’s News & Views, longtime political consultant Gary Pearce joins Chris Fitzsimon to discuss the governor’s past 12 months, his tepid poll numbers, and his prickly relationship with the press. For a preview of Pearce’s radio interview, click below:
