Gov. Pat McCrory is scheduled to attend a forum with other Republican governors next week in Aspen, Colo.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker are all expected to attend. The Aspen Institute's event July 25 is titled "What's working at the state level?"
The first thing McCrory will have to tell the crowd is what state he governs. The program lists him as the governor of South Carolina -- a slip that will delight Democrats who contend McCrory and GOP legislative leaders are transforming the state into its more conservatively strident southern neighbor.
