WWAY - Perdue to Miss Southeastern NC Debate

Bev Perdue is hiding.

That is what her Republican opponent in the governor's race said about her decision to skip a debate in southeastern North Carolina for the second time this fall.

Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory spoke to voters in Whiteville this morning before heading on to Brunswick Community College. In an interview with NewsChannel 3, McCrory said Perdue is using tactics she used during her primary campaign.

"Beverly Perdue is doing to me exactly what she did to Richard Moore -- negative TV ads, distorted ads, and avoiding debates and hiding. That's not the type of leadership we need, and I think the people should be fed up with it, especially in southeastern North Carolina," said McCrory.

McCrory and Libertarian Michael Munger have both agreed to take part in our candidate's forum at Cape Fear Community College on October 24.

Perdue does not plan to attend. She also skipped a forum here back in April.

McCrory and Perdue will hold the third of their five debates September 9 in Raleigh.
