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.
