Easley Encourages Obama To Participate In NC Debate

Gov. Mike Easley is encouraging Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama to debate Hillary Rodham Clinton later this month in North Carolina.

Easley said in a letter dated Tuesday that Obama's participation
in an April 27 debate will give voters the best opportunity to hear
the candidates discuss the issues.

Obama previously agreed to a debate in North Carolina that would
have taken place before next Tuesday's Pennsylvania primary. But
the North Carolina Democratic Party scheduled a 90-minute debate
for April 27 -- after that primary.

Clinton has accepted the later date, but Obama has not. His
campaign did not immediately return a call Tuesday seeking comment.
