RALEIGH, N.C. -

Gov. Pat McCrory is back in North Carolina after two days of meetings in and around Washington, D.C. related to the military, education and the state's economy.

McCrory spoke Thursday about education and business innovation at a center created by GE designed to encourage invention and improvements in manufacturing. Later he went to northern Virginia and Lockheed Martin's airplane fighter demonstration center to get a feel for the new F-35 jet. Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point is expected to become a center for F-35 maintenance, overhaul and repairs for decades.
