Richard Moore Says Perdue Backing Off Pledge To Stay Positive

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- State Treasurer Richard Moore says a campaign mailer from a teachers' group indicates Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue has backed off her pledge to run a positive campaign for governor.

Perdue said last week she had taken advertising critical of Moore off the air and wouldn't go negative the rest of the campaign. She asked supporters and groups that endorsed her to do the same.

Moore campaign manager Jay Reiff said Tuesday a mailer sent by the North Carolina Association of Educators questioning Moore's job managing pension funds shows the promise was short-lived. The NCAE endorsed Perdue for governor.

NCAE vice president Sheri Strickland said all future mailers from the group will meet Perdue's request, which Perdue reiterated Tuesday.
