Gov. Bev Perdue is a no show at the N.C. Democratic Party's Jefferson-Jackson dinner, it's big annual fundraiser. "She's sick as a dog," explained Congressman Brad Miller of Raleigh. Perdue attended the Saturday morning women's breakfast but left sick.
In her absence, Miller touted Perdue. Everyone "should be proud of the backbone Bev has shown in the last 3 1/2 years but especially in the last year and a half," he said referencing her battles with the Republican-led legislature. "I wish every Democrat in the nation was as tough as Bev Perdue."
The kind words should help Perdue recuperate, especially after she received this news Friday.
