Former Gov. George Allen, the Republican U.S. Senate nominee, has agreed to three fall debates with former Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, the Democratic nominee.
September 20th, Thursday, 12-1 pm – hosted by the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, McLean, Virginia. The debate will also air live on NBC4 and then be rebroadcast on Sunday, September 23 at noon, following Meet The Press’ Press Pass program.
October 8th, Monday – hosted by the AARP, League of Women Voters Virginia, WVCE Public Radio and WTVR CBS 6 TV Richmond, Virginia.
October 18th, Thursday – hosted by WSLS NBC 10 TV and Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia.
Kaine spokesperson Brandi Hoffine said, “We’ve accepted eight broadcast debates across Virginia, including these three. We’re hopeful that there will be more so that as many Virginians as possible have the opportunity to hear directly from the candidates, but we’re looking forward to these three.”
Allen and Kaine have debated twice so far — last December at AP Day at the Capitol and in July at the Homestead, a session sponsored by the Virginia Bar Association.
