It’s pretty cool that these governor candidates have already started scheduling public debates for people to attend. They definitely set a precedent that all public officials should follow.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Three Maryland Democratic candidates for governor are announcing plans for debates before the June primary.
The campaigns for Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Attorney General Doug Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur announced the details Wednesday.
The campaigns say the first debate will take place on May 7 and will be moderated by NBC’s David Gregory. It will be televised in the Washington, D.C., and Hagerstown, Md., markets. Another second debate on June 2 will be televised statewide on Maryland Public Television.
The campaigns have agreed to a radio debate on WOLB-AM moderated by former state Sen. Larry Young. The date for this event has not been set.
The primary is June 24.
