Steve Lough: How about ‘Free Fallin’ ’?

How about

‘Free Fallin’ ’?

I feel it is my civic duty to educate Gov. “I didn’t know that! Pat” McCrory about his favorite song, “I Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty.

George W. Bush tried to use that song as his campaign theme song in 2000. Petty heard about it and promptly sent Bush a cease and desist letter from his lawyer. Bush backed down.
