North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory explained Thursday why he does not think that signing new abortion regulations violates a campaign promise.

When McCrory was a candidate for governor, a moderator asked him this question during a debate:

"If you're elected governor, what further restrictions on abortion would you agree to sign? I'll start with you, Mr. McCrory," she said.

"None," McCrory replied.

But a bill passed this week will be the second one restricting abortions that McCrory will sign.

Governor Pat McCrory has made replenishing the state’s economic incentives fund one of his top, immediate priorities. This week Republican leaders in the Senate introduced their own plan, which differs significantly from the governor’s. It sets up a debate over incentives, but also falls into a larger, intra-party fight that’s as much regional as ideological.
