Pat McCrory: How to Get a Handle on the Crime Surge

“My wife and I used to go vacation in San Francisco. We don’t anymore…This is what’s headed toward the rest of the nation.”

On January 24th, former North Carolina Governor and current candidate for United States Senate Pat McCrory joined Merion West editor-in-chief Erich Prince to discuss his candidacy, with a particular focus on the issue of crime. Drawing from his time as Mayor of Charlotte, as well as his governorship, Governor McCrory comments on approaches to addressing homelessness, quality-of-life issues in cities, as well as gangs and violent crime. Throughout the discussion, Governor McCrory emphasizes the importance of practical past experience and the potential to bring that to Washington, D.C.

Erich J. Prince is the editor of Merion West. Erich has contributed to a variety of publications including The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Hartford Courant, The News & Observer, the Orlando Sentinel, and The Hill. He studied political science at Yale, completing his thesis on polarization in the United States Congress.
