“Our commitment is to provide voters with as much information about where each candidate stands on the¬†issues that impact their lives on a daily basis so that they can make smart and informed decisions,”¬† news director Andrea Parquet-Taylor said in a statement.

Questions will be submitted to the three candidates — Walter Dalton, Bob Etheridge and Bill Faison — by North Carolina residents. The state’s gubernatorial primary is on May 8.
