RALEIGH N.C. Governor Pat McCrory will meet with President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday according to Trump’s transition team.The announcement comes the day after McCrory conceded the governor’s race to his opponent Roy Cooper. It also comes the same day that Trump is scheduled to appear at Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville for the North Carolina stop of his “USA Thank You Tour 2016.” Trump is visiting states that played a critical role in his November 8 presidential win over Hillary Clinton.N.C. voted to give the state’s 15 electoral votes to Trump, with approximately 51 percent of North Carolinians voting for the Republican nominee. McCrory appeared with Trump at a rally in Wilmington during the campaign and spoke at Trump’s last appearance in the state in Raleigh on the day before the election.Insiders speculate that McCrory might be on a short list for a high-ranking position within the Trump administration’s Department of Transportation, Department of Housing and Urban Development or possibly the Small Business Administration. McCrory was mayor of Charlotte for fourteen years before landing in the N.C. governor’s mansion. His unsuccessful campaign for re-election centered around the “Carolina Comeback,” touting the state’s lower personal and corporate taxes and dropping unemployment rates.
