Roy Cooper sent letters to friends and supporters letting them know he would be running for re-election in 2008 and would not pursue the Governor's office.
There is no reason given. The Charlotte Observer has the story.
Anybody else hearing anything about this? Parts of the story were odd, especially the speculation about which candidate would benefit with Cooper out. Apparently, North Carolinians can't tell the difference between two white men with different names. Last I checked we didn't have photo ballots.
