Perdue talks to Mississippi governor, doesn’t apologize

Gov. Bev Perdue has spoken to Mississippi’s governor after she criticized the approval of last week’s referendum banning gay marriage by saying it made North Carolina “look like Mississippi.”

But her spokesman said Perdue didn’t apologize for her remarks.

Perdue spokesman Mark Johnson said Perdue had a very good discussion Monday with Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, who said last Friday that he was disappointed with Perdue’s comments during a Pitt County visit.
