The debate will take place at the NCBA’s Management Team Conference which is being held at the Pinehurst Resort. Delegates attending the Conference and members of the media will make up the live audience.
WRAL’s award-winning news anchor, David Crabtree, has been chosen to serve as the moderator for the debate. As a highly respected anchor Mr. Crabtree will ask questions that, according to the NCBA
“in a free flowing format not burdened by the time constraints of a standard debate format.”
Although the candidates both participated in a voters forum last month, this will be their first debate together. It will be an opportunity for the candidates to share their backgrounds, credentials and their goals for the 2nd congressional district. And, by answering thought-provoking questions, they will share not only the issues they see, but the solutions they would use to help solve the problems.
I think this will certainly be a highlight of the interesting Campaign Trail that Clay is traveling! I am sure he will be well prepared, personable, dynamic, and will even use a bit of humor to get his point across!
Renee…are you really ready to take on Clay Aiken?
