Pat McCrory Says He Won't Run In 9th District; Mulls '20 Run For Governor
Former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory says he won't run for Congress in the 9th District if a new election is called following an investigation into ballot fraud.
McCrory, who was speaking on his radio show Wednesday morning, said he was waiting to make a decision about another run for governor in 2020 or potentially the U.S. Senate in 2022.
"I want to go through a thorough examination with my family and my friends and supporters of whether I should reentry (sic) into politics in 2020 and 2022 and I’m going to do that very deliberately, and I’m going to do that with a sense of maturity and wisdom and with a deep heart," McCrory said.
The former Charlotte mayor and conservative Republican lost to Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper in 2016 by 10,277 votes.
