When the U.S. president visits your state, it's not uncommon for the governor -- regardless of party -- to greet him. President Barack Obama arrives Thursday for a speech in Mooresville.
But it's still unclear if Republican Gov. Pat McCrory will join him or acknowledge his visit in any way. A spokesman for McCrory said earlier this week "it is still yet to be determined whether or not the governor will be with President Obama."
Obama will visit a school to see technology being used in the classroom and later deliver remarks touting digital learning. It's a topic near-and-dear to McCrory, too. Will we see an Obama-Chris Christie or Obama-Charlie Crist moment of bipartisanship?
