RALEIGH -

(AP) - North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory seems to have found his footing within state government after more than three months in office.
    
The question is whether voters and Republican colleagues at the General Assembly will continue to like where he stands.
    
McCrory reaches his 100th day as governor Monday. He spent the first several weeks hiring staff, putting out administrative fires and making a couple big decisions. Now he's entered a new phase. In the past month, he's proposed a two-year state budget and privatizing parts of Medicaid and the Commerce Department.
    
The former Charlotte mayor tells The Associated Press in an interview that his administration is working with a sense of urgency to fix immediate problems and implement long-term changes.
