Dalton, McCrory agree on 2 TV debates in October


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gubernatorial candidates Walter Dalton and Pat McCrory have agreed to participate this fall in two statewide debates organized by the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters.

The association's educational foundation announced Thursday the Republican McCrory and Democrat Dalton have signed off on debates for Oct. 3 and Oct. 16 at the University of North Carolina Television studios in Research Triangle Park. The debates will air on TV and radio and feature a moderator and broadcast journalists.

Libertarian Barbara Howe will not participate.

The current lieutenant governor Dalton and the former Charlotte mayor McCrory already have met once for a debate in June at the North Carolina Bar Association annual meeting in Wilmington.

Both major-party candidates have said they want more debates but haven't unveiled any agreements for other venues.
