WINSTON-SALEM — Republican gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory has the backing of the state's leading small business group.
Thursday, the NC chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business announced its support for McCrory in this fall's election.
"It is crucial that we have a governor who understands both the private and the public sector and has that experience. Pat McCrory understands small business. He's been in the private sector and his father was a small business owner," said NFIB state director Gregg Thompson.
The endorsement is a big win for McCrory.
