McCrory1978 Catawba College Alumnus Pat McCrory of Charlotte returned to his alma mater by helicopter on Saturday, Nov. 1st. The occasion was a Salisbury campaign stop for McCrory, the North Carolina Republican gubernatorial candidate, who is hoping to secure a win in the Nov. 4th Election.

McCrory, a seven-term mayor of Charlotte, is in a tight race with Democratic Lt. Gov. Bev Perdue to replace outgoing N.C. Governor Mike Easley.

McCrory landed on the lawn of the Omwake-Dearborn Chapel on Catawba’s campus Saturday morning and then spoke to a supportive crowd of about 75 people who gathered in front of the College's Corriher-Linn-Black Library. The crowd included Salisbury Mayor Susan Kluttz, a Democrat who has thrown her support behind McCrory, and Catawba College President Craig Turner.
