Perdue Will Not Run Again in North Carolina

North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue (D) is expected to announce today that she will not seek a second term as governor, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Her campaign began telling top North Carolina Democrats in the past 24 hours, setting up a scramble at the top of the state ticket.

The Washington Post says names that are likely to be bandied about as possible Democratic replacements include Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton, Attorney General Roy Cooper, former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles and Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx.
