ROCKY MOUNT — The major-party candidates for North Carolina governor worked to leave lasting impressions in their final televised debate Wednesday night, with Democrat Walter Dalton saying he would fight for the people and Republican Pat McCrory saying he would fix how government interacts with the people.

The debate lacked some of the rancor of previous TV meetings between the leading candidates this year, but Dalton still sought to provoke the former Charlotte mayor. Dalton accused him of lacking details about his tax and education plans and raised questions about his work activity and mayoral decisions.

“Big corporations, special interests pay a lot of money for people to fight for them,” Dalton, the sitting lieutenant governor, told the debate audience at North Carolina Wesleyan College and statewide. “I’ll fight for you, and working together, I will build that bright future for North Carolina.”
