Republican Gov. Pat McCrory has appointed two more people to the North Carolina Board of Transportation, including a longtime Democratic legislator who endorsed him in last year's campaign.

Former Rep. Jim Crawford of Oxford and Louis Wetmore of Hickory were sworn in to the 19-member board Thursday during the monthly board meeting in Raleigh.

Crawford served in the House for 14 terms and was one of the chamber's chief budget-writers under both Democratic and Republican speakers. He was defeated in the May 2012 primary.

Wetmore is a Republican who is an investment adviser and founder of a shipping container company.

McCrory also addressed the board on Thursday.
