RALEIGH -- The two men vying for the governor's seat addressed North Carolina's business leaders Tuesday. The N.C. Chamber of Commerce held its fifth annual Government Affairs Conference in downtown Raleigh.

Republican candidate and former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory touted his business resume. Both men talked a lot about creating a good climate for businesses, but focused on different ways to do it.

"So we're gonna reduce regulations, we're gonna look at duplication," said McCrory. "This is not just a political speech, we're really gonna change the regulatory environment and culture here in North Carolina."

Democratic candidate and current Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton focused on his record as a legislator.

"In North Carolina we have invested in research, we have some of the greatest research institutions both public and private in the nation today," he said. "We do not need to damage that. That's what drives new economies."

The most recent polls show McCrory leading Dalton by 6 points.
