Whoa! I guess there was something to the Walter Dalton speculation after all!
North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue (D) is set to announce today that she will not seek reelection in 2012, according to multiple sources familiar with her plans.
Perdue, who turned 65 earlier this month, was set for a rematch of her 2008 race with former Charlotte mayor Pat McCrory (R), but she has been plagued by low approval ratings and faced some tough odds this year.
I’m not surprised by this. I just said the other day that she has consistently trailed McCrory in a rematch since about six months after taking office.
