North Carolina still has the top governor's race in the country, according to the Washington Post's political blog, The Fix, which declared the race "the GOP’s race to lose.''
"(Pat) McCrory has a big cash advantage after a contested Democratic primary, $4.4 million to $700,000. He’s also leading in all recent polls of the race -- mostly by a significant amount, thorugh an NBC/Marist College poll in late June showed him up by just two points. and on top of of it all, the GOP now ha video of Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton(d) declining to rule out a tax increase. Expect to see it in an ad this fall.''
