Two debates slated this month in state, national races

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

VINCENNES -- The League of Women Voters of Knox County will host two live televised debates in Vincennes this month featuring candidates for the District 45 State Representative and 8th District U.S. Congress seat.

According to a Vincennes University news release, the first debate will be Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. between the candidates for Indiana House of Representatives District 45 -- Rep. Bruce Borders (R-Jasonville) and Rep. Kreg Battles (D-Vincennes).

The second debate will be Oct. 24 at 8 p.m. featuring the candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 8th District, incumbent Congressman Larry Bucshon (R-Evansville), Democrat Dave Crooks, and Libertarian Bart Gadau.

This Congressional debate will be co-hosted by the League of Women Voters of Vigo County (Terre Haute).

Both debates will be at Vincennes University and carried live by WVUT television and WVUB 91.1 FM radio, plus live streamed over the WVUT website. There will be no open seating for either debate.

The public is invited to submit questions in advance at either www.lwvknoxcounty.org (click on "Contact Us") or (812) 890-3093. League members will review the questions for relevance and will combine and paraphrase as necessary for clarity, brevity, and to avoid duplication.

Questions will only be considered on issues of either state or national concern.
