RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — Democrat Walter Dalton is running out of time to dismantle Republican Pat McCrory’s perceived front-runner status on the eve of early voting in the North Carolina governor’s race.

Dalton is the sitting lieutenant governor and has been working to discredit McCrory’s self-characterization as an outsider who will work to fix what he calls the state’s broken government and economy.

Dalton acknowledges he has a gap to breach but says there is still time to change minds. He says people will choose him once they hear of his detailed plans to generate jobs and oppose Republican policies in the Legislature.

As the former mayor of Charlotte, McCrory has held a campaign-fundraising advantage that’s allowed him to appear on TV more frequently.
