Two snippets on yesterday’s top story…
It’s interesting to note The Washington Post actually broke news of Gov. Perdue’s decision not to run for a second term before the News & Observer. The FIX, a political column in the Post had a story up at 8:56 a.m. yesterday. The News & Observer had an Under the Dome piece about an expected announcement posted at 9:08 a.m. Makes you wonder about the source of the story’s momentum.
At last September’s Civitas Poll Luncheon, political consultant and former chairman of the State G.O.P. Tom Fetzer raised a few eyebrows when he predicted Gov. Perdue would not be the Democratic nominee for Governor in 2012.
And you thought polling numbers were the only things discussed at the Civitas Poll Luncheons!
