Patrick Gannon of the The Insider (subscription required) reports that Rep. Phil Shepard was overheard Tuesday delivering some harsh words about the governor to his Republican colleagues.
Before a House Transportation Committee Tuesday morning, Shepard, a committee cochairman, was overheard expressing frustration about the Republican governor to fellow legislators. “If he would just shut his mouth,” Shepard said. “What does he think he’s trying to accomplish?”
Ouch. No wonder McCrory spends a lot of time flying around the state cutting ribbons.
