RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Gov. Pat McCrory will be staying in North Carolina’s capital Tuesday night as he watches election results.
Earlier Tuesday, McCrory visited a North Raleigh polling site on Bedfordtown Drive.
The governor could be seen posing for photos with voters waiting in line.
This is McCrory’s third gubernatorial race.
In 2008, he lost to Democrat Bev Perdue who later decline to run for a second term as governor.
Four years later, McCrory topped then incumbent Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton.
“I’m just as nervous today as I was four years ago, as I was in 2008,” McCrory said. “But in comparison to both years, the turnout model seems to be very favorable to us because of the people who voted in early voting and typically I win big on voting day.”
The governor was also asked about House Bill 2 and the impact it could have on the election.
He said the media and liberal left are talking about it more than voters.
