Two debate for Guv tonight–no Perdue, though

Apparently Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bev Perdue melts if she participates in more than five debates. Tonight on WUNC TV, she will not take the stage with Republican Pat McCrory and Libertarian Mike Munger because she had committed to only five debates and tonight’s would make six. It makes sense: McCrory and Munger have more fiscal commonalities and would have quite possibly put Perdue in a tight situation. For example, both McCrory and Munger support school choice, i.e., more charter schools and a voucher system that would allow low income studets in failing schools the choice to go to a private school. Perdue has used vouchers as her main talking point to highlight the difference between her and McCrory (no word if she knows Munger is running for Guv as well).
