JMG reader Tom points out that North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory’s team has wasted no time in pumping out a money beg for a “strategic defense fund.” The above tweet links to McCrory’s reelection donation page, which now bears this message: “Fight back against the federal government’s overreach and bullying tactics.” We’re guessing that by “strategic defense fund” McCrory actually means “money to help defeat my Democratic opponent.” Shady, but not surprising.
Stand with North Carolina & contribute $5 or more to Gov. McCrory’s strategic defense fund > https://t.co/dhE4Z30WJv
