As Gov. McCrory Fundraises with Trump, Will he Use Taxpayer Funds to Travel to Fundraiser?

RALEIGH, N.C. – Instead of denouncing Donald Trump’s racist remarks, which grow more extreme and dangerous every day, Gov. McCrory continues to double down on his support for the Republican nominee. And today, ahead of Trump’s campaign event in Greensboro, Governor McCrory will attend a fundraiser for Trump.

WBTV recently reported Gov. McCrory charged taxpayers $60,000 for unnecessary flights on the state plane. A closer look shows that on multiple occasions, McCrory used state aircraft for trips that included campaign fundraisers in 2015. Earlier this month, the NCDP filed a records request seeking more information on where the governor has traveled on the taxpayers’ dime.

North Carolinians deserve to know if taxpayers are footing the bill for Governor McCrory to attend fundraisers with Donald Trump. From his comments on a federal judge to threats against an entire religion, Donald Trump’s divisive language is harmful for our state and country. Despite this, Governor McCrory continues to throw his support behind Donald Trump. Voters know North Carolina deserves better than a Trump-McCrory ticket,” said Patsy Keever, North Carolina Democratic Party Chair.
