Dalton Campaigns in Winston-Salem

Walter Dalton
Jeff Tiberii

Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Walter Dalton held a Town Hall meeting this morning in Winston-Salem.

Jeff Tiberii: The current Lieutenant Governor answered questions from a group of about 30 people at a local community college. Dalton responded to audience members on issues of transportation, education and was repeatedly asked about taxes and if he would extend a sales tax increase, should he be elected to office; a position he has not taken a definitive stance on.

Walter Dalton: I have not said what I would do, because I don’t know what the financial projections are going to show. I understand money is coming in a little bit better now and hopefully we’re turning the corner on the economy, but it’s still a tough time.

The campaign of Republican Pat McCrory, Dalton’s opponent, released a video today. It criticizes Dalton for exaggerating his record on Community Colleges. McCrory, a former seven-term mayor of Charlotte is leading Dalton in the latest republican-leaning Rasmussen poll by five points.

During his 20 years in public radio, he was Morning Edition Host at WFDD and WUNC’s Greensboro Bureau Chief and later, the Capitol Bureau Chief.
