Perdue To Be Sworn In As NC Governor Jan. 10

Beverly Perdue will be sworn in as North Carolina's next governor on Jan. 10.

Perdue announced the date and the leaders for her transition team Monday. The Democratic lieutenant governor will move up to governor after defeating Republican Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory during last week's election.

Perdue's team will be led by campaign manager Zach Ambrose, former gubernatorial Cabinet secretary Norris Tolson, and Perdue's chief of staff as lieutenant governor, Don Hobart.

Ambrose held Hobart's job until he switched over to the campaign last year. Tolson is president of the North Carolina Biotechnology Center and was revenue secretary for outgoing Gov. Mike Easley. He also served as transportation and commerce secretary under former Gov. Jim Hunt.

    Taylor: That is the fourth time that I have read your sentence today, twice today on this site alone. Do all you right-wingers drink of the same kool-aid and get your talking points at the same group think, brain washing rallies? And y'all say that Obama backers have been fooled, you guys even steal each others poorly scripted lines and repeat them ad nauseam! Get an original whacky thought of your own at least.
