They were asked questions by a panel of newspersons: Rudy Anderson of WAAA, Tim Carr of WSJS and Sharyn Bratcher, managing editor of the Chronicle. The candidates were also asked questions supplied by the audience. Republican candidate Horton attacked the Democratic party by saying that it uses blacks, and that decades of loyalty in Winston-Salem has only brought destruction of black neighborhoods in their communities.
