Bill Graham is making a whistlestop tour of the state by plane.
The Republican gubernatorial candidate flew in a private jet from Wilmington to Raleigh, Greenville and Greensboro today to meet with local reporters and a handful of supporters.
In stop in Raleigh around noon, he said that he has "even money" chances to make it to a runoff, arguing that his Web site has gotten a lot of hits in recent days as undecided voters try to make up their minds for Election Day.
"Folks are still shopping and making their final decisions," he said.
Graham was a little annoyed that the gas tax — his signature issue in the gubernatorial campaign — has suddenly become a hot topic in the Democratic presidential primary.
"I also find it very ironic that some of the folks on the other side of the aisle have suddenly taken a huge interest in the issue," he said.
