Under the Dome

Harrison endorses Gurley for Lt. Gov.

Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison is backing Wake County Commissioner Tony Gurley, a Republican, in his campaign for Lt. Governor.

Harrison will appear at a Gurley fund raiser Tuesday with former Lt. Gov. Jim Gardner at the Farmer's Market Restaurant in Raleigh. Tickets begin at $75.

Of course, the  sheriff does depend on Gurley, as county commissioner, for funding for his department.

“Tony has always impressed me with his ability to meet the country's funding needs – including those of our office – while lowering the tax burden on Wake County taxpayers,” Harrison said in a statement.
 Gurley faces Dan Forest, a Raleigh architect in next May's GOP primary, with the winner taking on Democratic incumbent Walter Dalton.
