More on McCrory from Jonathon Lowe in our Greensboro newsroom.
News 14 Carolina has learned through sources that the seven-term Republican will announce his run for governor at 1 p.m. Tuesday in his hometown of Jamestown, near Greensboro.
Also from our Charlotte newsroom. This is what Gov. Easley had to say about McCrory after an event in Charlotte he attended.
"Coming from a large city gives you a financial base that's important. I know when I ran I came out of little Southport and raising money was a whole new thing then running for District Attorney. So that gives you a little bit of an advantage."
Gov. Easley would not say anything more about his chances against Democrats.
