Major Party Nominees For Governor Will Debate in October In Blacksburg

Another debate in the governor’s race has been scheduled. Officials at Virginia Tech and WDBJ-TV in Roanoke have that they will jointly be hosts for an October 24th debate on the Blacksburg campus. Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli have agreed in principle to the panel-style debate at Tech’s Haymarket Theater with a few small details still being resolved. WDBJ and WUSA-TV in Washington will carry the debate live. Cuccinelli and McAuliffe are scheduled to debate in late September before the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce.
