AUGUSTA – The Maine Republican Party announced Monday that North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory will speak at the 2014 convention in Bangor on Saturday.
“We are thrilled to have Governor McCrory coming to our Convention,” said Maine GOP Chairman Rick Bennett in a press release.
“I am especially looking forward to discussing some important issues with Governor McCrory on stage, and giving everyone in attendance a chance to get to know the man who is leading the ‘North Carolina Comeback.’”
McCrory, a former mayor of Charlotte, won the 2012 gubernatorial election by a large margin and has been an active reformer in North Carolina.
McCrory has successfully opposed Medicaid expansion, signed voter ID legislation into law, and brought about state income tax reform and an elimination of the estate tax. McCrory also vetoed a bill that would require drug testing of welfare recipients.
The Maine Republican Party Convention will be held on April 25th and April 26th, 2014 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine, according to the press release. McCrory’s appearance will take place on the afternoon of Saturday, April 26th, shortly before Gov. Paul LePage’s speech to the convention.
