WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The election for governor isn't until November of 2012, but some people already anticipate there could be a rematch between Governor Beverly Perdue and Charlotte's former mayor Pat McCrory.

McCrory was in Wilmington Friday, raising money through a luncheon aimed at focusing on issues important to women.  He spoke at the Hilton Riverside during a meeting for The Women of Southeastern North Carolina.

McCrory took questions from the audience and several people referred to him as governor.  He said he would like to run for governor in 2012, but wants to make sure he has the support before he makes an official announcement.
