Dan Forest openly coveting the Governor’s Mansion

It’s no secret that Lt. Gov. Dan Forest wants to be Governor. At a local GOP event in Craven County, he all but made it official. According to the New Bern Sun Journal on February 28, Forest “predicted that, in four years, he would be governor.”

This week Forest told Tim Boyum, “I’d love to be governor someday.”

He may be the first Republican to openly talk about a 2020 bid for Governor, but he won’t be the last.
