Republican North Carolina gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory's campaign is criticizing his opponent for not doing enough to improve the state's mental health care in her past eight years at lieutenant governor.
Democratic Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue released a mental health platform Friday that calls for better case management of patient care to ensure a minimal level of mental health care statewide.
McCrory's campaign said in a news release Saturday that Perdue has been a lawmaker for 20 years and chairmwoman of the Health and Wellness Trust Fund since 2001 and has done nothing to help solve the state's mental health crisis.
McCrory is the mayor of Charlotte.
