Beverly Eaves "B" Perdue (born January 14, 1947) is an American politician and member of the Democratic Party currently serving as the 73rd Governor of the U.S. state of North Carolina. She is the first female governor of North Carolina.

Perdue started her political career in the 1980s, serving in the North Carolina House of Representatives. She then served 5 terms in the North Carolina Senate before she was elected as the 32nd Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.

Perdue was elected to the office of Governor of North Carolina in 2008 against then Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory by a 50-46 margin, and is highly expected to face McCrory again in her bid for a second term in 2012.

Her 2008 gubernatorial campaign went under State and Federal investigation, and was fined $30,000, but it was concluded that the Perdue Committee did not intentionally violate the law.

When Hillary Clinton dropped out of the 2008 presidential race The New York Times mentioned Perdue as a potential future presidential candidate.
