So far, the fight for control at Charlotte Douglas has been viewed as a bitter battle between the Queen City and the state capital. But Governor Pat McCrory says that's not quite the case.
"The legislation that's coming to Raleigh did not come from Raleigh, it came from Charlotte," McCrory says.
He's been told the primary power struggle is actually happening right here, and one party is private.
"That legislation is being pushed by people from Charlotte, and there seems to be a conflict between the city political leaders and the city business leaders," McCrory says, "and I just ask them to start talking to each other."
The problem with that? City officials say they haven't a clue who these business leaders are. McCrory says he doesn't know either.
"We don't know where it's coming from," says City Council member Andy Dulin. Dulin has traveled to Raleigh repeatedly to try to find out. It hasn't been easy. So far, all he knows, "is it's secret business people that have asked [Senator Bob] Rucho to do this."
Rucho is sponsoring the bill. He says he was first approached with the idea for it a few months ago. But he won't say who approached him.
Says McCrory, "I suppose members of the business community who have yet to be identified."
