In their second live, statewide television debate, the two major candidates for governor – Democrat Walter Dalton and Republican Pat McCrory – lay out a distinct choice voters. You’ll hear exchanges on education, the Racial Justice Act, taxes, and Dalton’s charge that McCrory is insensitive to the African American community. Then host Donna Martinez analyzes the debate, and whether Lt. Gov. Dalton can realistically make up a double-digit polling deficit, with progressive Chris Fitzsimon of N.C. Policy Watch and conservative Becki Gray of the John Locke Foundation. That’s followed by an update on the court case filed by a former staffer of the North Carolina Democratic Party against the party and its chairman, David Parker. Stephanie Hawco of NCN News reports on why the case is honing in on comments Parker made in a news conference about a settlement of a sexual harassment allegation. Next are comments from the two candidates for Superintendent of Public Instruction – Democratic incumbent June Atkinson and Republican John Tedesco – made at a debate last week. Atkinson and Tedesco talk about their views on how best to evaluate teachers, whether tax credits and vouchers are good policy, and whether or not the No Child Left Behind law should be reauthorized by Congress. And finally, with less than three weeks to go in the presidential race, President Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney took the gloves off at their second televised debate at Hofstra University. You’ll hear their tense exchanges on Obama’s record, as well as energy and oil and gas permits.
