McCroryAs Gov. Pat McCrory stepped back from the microphone after his inaugural address Saturday, an audience peppered with Salisbury residents rose to its feet. Hope, some later said, had returned.
Thousands gathered around the Capitol building's south lawn to hear the second swearing-in of McCrory and his first official speech.

McCrory, the former mayor of Charlotte, is the first Republican governor in North Carolina in 20 years.
