Gov. Pat McCrory’s office sent out a press release this morning stating McCrory will be out of the state this week celebrating the 25th wedding anniversary with his wife, Ann.
From the release:
Governor Pat McCrory will be out of the state this week to celebrate his and Ann’s 25th wedding anniversary. Lt. Governor Dan Forest will serve as acting governor for the duration of the trip.
The state constitution calls for lieutenant governor to step in as acting governor when “during the absence of the Governor from the State.”
The press release did not indicate for how long the governor will be away, and where he’s headed.
N.C. Policy Watch has asked the press office for details, and we’ll update this post when we hear back.
