Remarks about Miss. raise questions

North Carolina’s governor took a shot at Mississippi on the heels of what she saw as an embarrassing victory at the polls of a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman in her state.

Gov. Beverly Purdue told a crowd in Greenville, N.C., that people around the country must be confused at such an outcome in such a progressive state. “Folks are saying what in the world is going on in North Carolina,” Purdue said. “We look like Mississippi.”
