McCrory has promises to keep.......WRAL tracking.

For whatever it's worth, WRAL will be attempting to keep an eye on Pat McCrory. Naturally, the lunatic right-wing is highly irate (foaming at the mouth) about this attempt.

Not sure why WRAL is going hard but at least one media outlet is making an effort to keep track of this entirely Republican controlled mess and hopefully hold them not only accountable for their actions but making the public aware.

When Pat McCrory took the oath of office Saturday, he both officially shouldered the great expectations that attach to anyone who becomes governor and the hopes of fellow Republicans happy to see a member of their party take the office for the first time in 20 years.

But in some respects, the man who holds the record as the longest-serving mayor of Charlotte is something a blank slate when it comes to his new job. More Info PROMISE TRACKER Pat McCrory Promise Tracker

"We didn't have a whole lot of specific promises that candidate McCrory made," said John Dinan, a political science professor at Wake Forrest University. Instead of offering a detail-rich program of specifics, Dinan said, McCrory campaigned on the idea that government in Raleigh wasn't functioning right and he would be the one to fix it.

Along with winnowing regulations that the new Republican governor describes as a hindrance to business growth, McCrory has staked out ambitious but broad goals like remaking the state's tax system and getting various aspects of the education system to work together.


Pat McCrory Promise Tracker

Gov. Pat McCrory took office on Jan. 5, 2013, and like all politicians has made some promises to get the post.

As the state's first Republican governor in 20 years, McCrory will face some unique problems and challenges, even with a GOP-controlled legislature. WRAL News will keep up with the promises he made on the campaign trail to track his successes and failures over a four-year term. Is he able to cut taxes and reform government as he promised? Will teachers be paid for performance and will North Carolina move ahead with natural gas drilling?
