RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory got help from sitting governors from other states during his 2012 campaign. Now, he’s trying to pay it forward for another Republican gubernatorial hopeful.

McCrory was scheduled to attend a midday rally Thursday in Roanoke, Va., for Republican nominee for governor Ken Cuccinelli, who is in the final days of his campaign with Democratic rival Terry McAuliffe.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, South Carolina chief executive Nikki Haley and Wisconsin’s Scott Walker each spoke at campaign events last year for McCrory on the way to his victory over Democrat Walter Dalton.

A recent poll showed McAuliffe ahead of Cuccinelli, the sitting attorney general.
