RALEIGH, N.C. — Libertarian┬áBarbara Howe is wrapping up her run — her athletic run — for North Carolina governor two days before Election Day.

Howe has made a point of running 5 kilometers in every county since May as part of her campaign. She plans to run in her 100th and final county Sunday afternoon by taking off from the Legislative Building in Raleigh and ending in front of the Executive Mansion.

Howe invited Democratic nominee Walter Dalton and Republican candidate Pat McCrory to Sunday’s run and a news conference, but neither has responded. Dalton is attending a Bill Clinton rally Sunday afternoon.

Howe is making her third bid for governor. Her party won’t have to collect signatures to stay on the ballot if she gets 2 percent of the vote.
