Libertarian candidate for governor Mike Munger is planning a marathon campaign swing before Election Day.
The Duke University professor is slated to visit nearly 20 cities and towns this weekend as he campaigns along U.S. Highway 64, from Murphy in the mountains to Manteo at the coast.
Munger is likely to finish well behind Democratic nominee Beverly Perdue and Republican Pat McCrory in the final election results. But if Munger wins at least 2 percent of the vote, the Libertarian Party automatically remains on state ballots through 2012.
Munger's campaign also reported receiving $26,350 in donations during the third quarter, compared to the millions that the other two campaigns generated.
