With less than 48 hours to go before Tuesday's primary election, Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue headed east as she tries to wrap up the Democratic Party's nomination for governor.
Perdue toured three towns in northeastern North Carolina on Sunday, capped by a speech in Hertford at its 250th anniversary celebration.
The communities are small, but are home to among the most reliable Democratic voters in the state.
Later Sunday, Perdue and her rival for the nomination, State
Treasurer Richard Moore, planned to campaign in Durham.
