Candidates for governor meet in second debate

DURHAM - North Carolina gubernatorial candidates Pat McCrory and Walter Dalton met in Durham Tuesday night in their second statewide televised debate.

The pair again sparred over the state budget and tax rates.  They differed over the fate of the Racial Justice Act, how to offer high school graduates education and training for the job market, and how to streamline state government.

McCrory and Dalton did agree on a few things.  Each called for an immediate cap on the state tax on gasoline--one of the highest in the nation.  They also agreed that creating toll roads in the state would be a bad idea.

Each man also said he has little faith in the latest political poll.  Tuesday's Rasmussen Poll put McCrory ahead of Dalton by 14 percent in North Carolina.
