Detroit Public TV is partnering with the Detroit Economic Club to provide live coverage of a debate between the two main candidates for one of Michigan’s U.S. Senate seats.
Senator Debbie Stabenow (D) will face her challenger, John James (R), in a one hour, in-depth discussion of the issues of importance to the state. During the debate, the candidates will answer questions from a panel of local journalists:
- Chad Livengood, senior reporter at Crain’s Detroit Business
- Chuck Stokes, editorial director of WXYZ-TV
- Vickie Thomas, city beat reporter for WWJ-AM
The debate will take place today, Monday, Oct. 15, at 12:35 p.m. during a meeting of the Detroit Economic Club. The event will be streamed live by Detroit Public TV at dptv.org/onedetroit
Sen. Stabenow, who was raised in Clare, MI, is seeking a fourth term in office. Her opponent, John James, from Farmington Hills is the president of James Group International.
DPTV will also be carrying the live-stream on our One Detroit Facebook page. We’d love to hear your comments, which you can share there.
Michigan voters will decide who goes to Washington – James or Stabenow — on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
