Gov. Perdue says election results aren't repudiation of N.C. Democratic Party

UPDATED: Gov. Bev Perdue said the Republican victories that defined the 2012 election in North Carolina are not a reflection on the state of the N.C. Democratic Party.

In her first comments about the election, the Democratic chief executive said the election showed larger forces at work in the state. "It's just the times. It's absolutely the times," she said. "What happened in the country was great: President Obama was re-elected, we gained Senate seats across the country. North Carolina is at an interesting time. Our population is changing."

Asked how long it would take Democrats to return to the governor's mansion, Perdue dodged. "I think the whole state is changing," she repeated during an interview before an event Tuesday.

Republicans took the governor's office, claimed supermajorities in the legislature and likely won the lieutenant governor's race.

Sooooo ...

Elections also didn't reflect high praise on the Governor's party.

Bev! Please, just hush!

Face facts, Governor.  The Dems took a whoopin'.  The best thing to do now is keep a low profile and remember that absolute power corrupts absolutely.  It won't be long before the Republicans start shooting themselves in the proverbial foot.   Such is the nature of all politicians.  

No change

Perdue is still delusional.
