Leading GOP candidates in final NC Senate debate

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - Four leading candidates for North Carolina Republican's nomination for U.S. Senate get one more chance to persuade voters in a statewide television debate one week before primary election day.

Greg Brannon, Heather Grant, Mark Harris and Thom Tillis were scheduled to participate in their third and final debate of the campaign Monday night at the University of North Carolina Television studios. Eight GOP members are seeking to challenge Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan in November.

The four participants projected largely similar views on issues in two debates last week, with Tillis promoting his record as House speaker. Brannon's answers referred repeatedly to the U.S. Constitution, while Harris focused on character. Grant talked often about raising up future party leaders.

Early in-person voting already has started. The primary is May 6.
