#rsrh Governor Bev Perdue (D, NC) CUTS AND RUNS.

That’s the word: no official confirmation yet, but expect a press conference at about 10:30 or so.

By the way, the sound that you are hearing is the sound of a thousand Democratic political operatives glumly scratching North Carolina off of their ‘in-play’ lists.  In 2008 Perdue eked out a 50/47 win over Pat McCrory (who is running again); since then, of course, her poll numbers have plummeted, the GOP has taken control of the state house, and the ludicrous redistricting of 2000 has been repaired by the new state legislature.  In short: Bev Perdue has presided over the wreck of the North Carolina Democratic party version of the Costa Concordia wreck, and now she wants to just get out and take a taxi home.

And she’ll be joined by NC-13’s Brad Miller, who is unsurprisingly admitting today what was already known: to wit, that the duly-elected state legislature has decided that Miller’s overstayed his welcome in Congress and needs to go home now.  As one of my colleagues has privately commented, the DNC at Charlotte is going to be a wake.

PS: [UPDATE]: Ed Morrissey helpfully reminds us all that Bev Perdue wanted to cancel elections in 2010. Amazing what the Democrats think that they can get away with, isn’t it?

  1. Yay! Living in this state under Bev has been onerous. Between her shenanigans and those of Bob Etheridge, I cringe ever time someone asks me where I’m from …

    Now if only we can get rid of David Price …

  2. @BG5: Thanks. I take that as a big compliment from you. I was a bit disappointed that I don’t know how to embed video. A link just doesn’t have the same impact.

  3. Good news. Unemployment here is still around 10%, and she was in over her head from day one. Sadly, I live in Durham, “represented” by David Price. Hopefully the GOP will make NC02 a more competitive district.

  4. I hate to say this, Moe, but .. you’re going to need to start a scorecard. I’m running out of claws to count ’em all on!


    p.s. does Turbo Tax Timmie’s “no confidence” count as a cut-and-run, or is it a straight-up firing?
