Gov. Pat McCrory will be sworn in yet again Saturday.
The state’s first Republican governor since Jim Martin left office in 1993 was sworn in during a small mostly private ceremony on Jan. 5.
On Saturday, he’ll take the oath again, this time on the South Lawn of the state Capitol, facing Fayetteville Street, as part of the inaugural activities.
The activities – music, parade and speeches – are all open to the public.
