The two leading Democratic candidates for governor have agreed on a debate date later this month. But until they also agree on a format, there's no guarantee they will meet.
The campaigns of Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue and State Treasurer
Richard Moore both said Tuesday they had agreed on April 22. The
North Carolina Association of Broadcasters confirmed the proposed
date and will offer a proposed format by the end of the week.
Moore has complained for weeks that Perdue won't get on the same
stage with him. She declined an invitation to take part in last week's televised debate on WITN. Perdue responded that she had already participated in four televised meetings with Moore, with another one set for April 24.
She asked the association this week to arrange an event.
Meanwhile, four Republican candidates for governor have agreed
to another debate on April 18.
