When it became evident that Romney was going to be the GOP presidential nominee, I also had that same nightmare scenario. If you've followed any of the banter on the Forum here, Gary, you know that Mitt wasn't anyone's first choice. He wasn't even a second choice for many of we conservatives/libertarians...republicans.
I do believe that this year, how Mitt is seen and supported/not supported in NC will have an affect on the down ticket GOP candidates, including McCrory. I doubt this little Tree.com thingy is any kind of breaker for him, though. Too early in the game.
If Romney is seen by voters in North Carolina as "their choice", then republicans will probably remain in control of the legislature and McCrory will probably squeek out a win as Guv. If not, then that nightmare scenario might just come to pass.
