Raleigh mayor endorses Obama

Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane endorsed President Barack Obama on Tuesday, overlooking the site of where Raleigh's new transit hub will be built.

The hub, which will receive $21 million in federal grants, is example of the president's commitment to investing in infrastructure, education and innovation, McFarlane said.

“President Obama understands what has made North Carolina into the best place in the country to live, work start a business and raise a family,” McFarlane said, standing next to Durham Mayor Bill Bell at the Boylan Bridge Brewpub.

McFarlane was elected mayor as an independent last year, but she had strong backing from the Democratic Party.

Ol' Nancy can't fool you can she Robbie.  Sharp as a tack!   :-)

Perry Woods claims Nancy is a Whig..... or is it a Torrie?  I get those two confused.
