Re: McCrory raised $6.4 million

No, all Pat had to do was build a time machine, not campaign with George Bush, not call all African Americans "gangsters," move away from Charlotte, and register as a Democrat.

Then he would have won. Hands down.

Re: McCrory raised $6.4 million

All Pat had to do was spend 3 mil running mug shot photos of all the Dem's headed to state and fed prisons during the ex Gov. Easy years. Run them week after week before the election. He made the link that it was and had happened, but the pure visual impact along with names would have sealed the deal. Next time, I'm sure the perp walks aren't finished yet.
