Bev Perdue will not debate her opponents in southeastern North Carolina, but she promises to come back if she's elected governor.

The Democrat spoke to supporters Thursday morning at Whitey's Restaurant in Wilmington, but she will not stay in town to take part in a forum WWAY is co-sponsoring Friday night. Perdue said the five debates she did in other parts of the state are enough. If you missed those, she said you can watch all five hours of debates online.

WWAY's Kevin Wuzzardo asked Perdue, "What about people who don't have access to the Internet, and don't have access to high-speed internet in rural communities?"

Perdue replied, "Every library in the state has high-speed internet access, and if that's a problem, there's always somebody, somewhere that they can use the Internet."

Perdue said if elected, she will hold the first of her planned town hall meetings in New Hanover County in mid-January.

During the primary season, Perdue also skipped a debate here in Wilmington. She blamed that on a scheduling conflict, even though she was in town that night and the day after.

Informed, she didn’t show, because she can’t handle the format, period. And I personally will not vote for her because of it. Ducking out of a debate jipped the constituency, not the person hosting it.

Yes, she did take her lies to the people. She is the same old politics we need to get rid of.

We need to break the death grip the corrupt good’ol boy Democrats have in Raleigh, of which she is immersed up to her eyeballs. She needs to go, Rand most assuredly needs to go, Soles needs to go….

We need a state Senate that listens to the people, not the sound of the thirty pieces of silver jingling in their pockets.

While at a banquet hosted by a Veterans Organization I listened to Bev talk about how much she has done for our veterans. Yes she lived in New Bern NC, “Home of MCAS Cherry Point” and then she thanked all the “Soldiers” at Camp Lejeune for all they have done for their country.
Why be surprised that she doesn’t want to come back, she’s not even sure she knows where it is!
