According to Politico, Gov. Bev Perdue is expected to announce today that she isn’t running for re-election. Gov. Perdue consistently does poorly in the polls when matched up against Republican Pat McCrory. She has one of the lowest approval ratings in the country. Even with in her own party, Perdue has faced speculation about Democratic challengers.
Rep. Bill Faison has alluded to the fact that he may seek the governorship himself. He has gone as far to say that he didn’t expect Perdue to file for re-election. Gov. Perdue has not only done poorly in the polls, but she has also faced immense controversy surrounding previously undisclosed flights by her 2008 campaign committee.
Could it be true that Perdue is throwing in the towel? Guess we’ll have to wait and see what transpires today!
