Latest dispatches from the Gov. Trail
Posted by John Hood at 10:44 AM
• Some political analysts predict a significant drop-off in voter participation on Tuesday, with many voting for president and then skipping the gubernatorial and down-ballot races.
• The Associated Press ponders the possibility of a runoff in the GOP nomination battle and the effects of the presidential primary on the Democratic one.
• Beverly Perdue, Richard Moore, Fred Smith, and Pat McCrory all hit the road with campaign stops in communities across the state. The GOP candidates are talking about issues such as education, economic development, crime, and illegal immigration. The Democrats are also tussling over health care and negative campaign ads.
• No matter who wins the governor's race, there's likely to be a major change in style after eight years of Mike Easley.
