RALEIGH, N.C. -

With controversy and a very low approval rating for Governor Pat McCrory, another opponent says he might step forward to try and kick him out of office.
     
Former Raleigh mayor Charles Meeker says he might do it in 2016.

Meeker expressed his interest in the office. He's weighing his options now.
     
The Democrat says North Carolina needs a much brighter future than what the General Assembly is offering now.
     
He says the unemployment rate in rural areas is too high and funding cuts are causing colleges and the education system to suffer.
     
Meeker says he'll make a final decision next April.
