Pat McCrory sees parallels between Sarah Palin's record and what he wants to do in Raleigh.
The Republican nominee for governor and seven-term Charlotte mayor released a statement saying Palin "proves that sometimes it takes a mayor to clean up state government."
I think Gov. Sarah Palin, a former mayor with a background of cleaning up state government, is a great choice for vice president. She is someone with a real record of changing the status quo and challenging corruption in state government. Gov. Palin stopped the infamous 'bridge to nowhere' and used her veto to actually cut spending.
McCrory also said Palin will be a contrast to Joe Biden, "a U.S. Senator for over 20 years."
Biden has been in the Senate for almost 36 years, if you're counting.
