Pat McCrory (b. October 17, 1956, in Columbus, Ohio) served as the 74th governor of North Carolina from January 5, 2013, to January 1, 2017. [1] McCrory won election on November 6, 2012. He ran for re-election in 2016, but was defeated by Roy Cooper (D) in the general election on November 8, 2016.

McCrory first sought the office of governor in 2008. He lost to Bev Perdue (D) by some 145,000 votes in the 2008 race. With her approval ratings slipping, Perdue did not seek re-election in 2012. Her lieutenant governor, Walter Dalton, ran for the Democrats, facing McCrory in the general election, which McCrory won. In doing so, he became the first Republican to take the seat in 20 years and the first to have a GOP legislature in more than 100 years.

From 1995 to 2009, McCrory served as mayor of Charlotte and received bipartisan support. During the 2012 race, he received support from the tea party movement. He disputed criticism that he had shifted his views. An analysis of Republican governors by Nate Silver of the New York Times in April 2013 ranked McCrory as the ninth-most conservative governor in the country.

On December 19, 2019, McCrory said he would not run for governor in 2020 and that he was considering running for U.S. Senate in 2022.

McCrory was born in Ohio and raised in Guilford County, North Carolina. After earning degrees in education and political science from Catawba College, he moved to Charlotte to work for Duke Energy.

He won election to an at-large seat on the Charlotte City Council, winning re-election two times and serving as mayor pro tempore. In 1995, he was elected mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, eventually serving seven terms.

In 2010 McCrory began work as the senior director of strategic initiatives for the Charlotte-based law firm of Moore & Van Allen. He is also currently a partner with McCrory & Company, a management consulting firm.
