Allowing various words to tumble out haphazardly:
McCrory said since he took office in January, special interest groups vowed to “fight us.” He said critics also have targeted the GOP leadership in Raleigh: House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate leader Phil Berger. “Let me tell you something. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have always been one of my favorite groups. One of my favorite songs is ‘I Won’t Back Down.’ Tom Tillis won’t back down. Phil Berger won’t back down. The Senate and the House won’t back down. We want to change the status quo in state government and change this economy. That’s what we’re going to do.”
Dude, if you really were a Tom Petty fan, you'd know that Full Moon Fever, the album that contained said favorite song, was a solo effort. There might have been a Heartbreaker or two helping out in the studio, but the band itself was a memory. Okay, that was me just having fun with a rock&roll poseur. This is McCrory placing land mines in his own path:
“Outsiders are coming in and they’re going to try to do to us what they did to Scott Walker in Wisconsin,” he said referring to that state’s governor. Walker and Republican legislators in Wisconsin passed a contentious law in 2011 that stripped most state workers’ collective bargaining rights. The law sparked massive protests at the state Capitol that generated national publicity for Walker. “They are going to come in and try to change the subject. And I’m not going to let them. I’m going to concentrate on the economy, education and government efficiency.”
