Ex-N. Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory files as US Senate candidate


Former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory has officially filed as a U.S. Senate candidate. He came to Raleigh on Friday to turn in his paperwork. McCrory called himself best-suited to represent the state during “serious times” at home and abroad. He was elected governor in 2012 and served one term. He was previously Charlotte mayor for 14 years. McCory is expected to face U.S. Rep. Ted Budd, former Rep. Mark Walker, combat veteran Marjorie Eastman and others in the GOP primary. Candidates have until noon March 4 to file. Former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley filed Thursday for the Democratic nomination.
