CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is urging people to help others battle their alcohol and drug addictions.

The Charlotte Observer reports (https://bit.ly/1MwF5w8 ) McCrory made the comments Saturday in Charlotte during The Response: North Carolina, a rally of mostly evangelical Christians.

McCrory urged those attending to help others, especially veterans, deal with their addictions. He said people need to get out of their churches and go emergency rooms, veterans’ centers, homeless shelters and jails to help.

It was the fourth Response rally around the country at which a governor has spoken.

Last month, McCrory complained that organizers used his picture in a full-page newspaper ad promoting the Charlotte event. His office said while he agreed to speak, he didn’t give organizers permission to use his picture in the ad.
