The Citizens Clean Elections Commission, in collaboration with O’Connor House, will present a debate with candidates for governor Monday, Sept. 29, 2014. The debate will air live on KAET Channel 8 in Phoenix and KUAT Channel 6 in Tucson starting at 5 p.m. The debate will also be available live via the Internet on the KAET website. In addition, C-SPAN will air the debate on a tape delayed basis on one of its networks.
“Clean Elections debates provide an opportunity for voters to hear the candidates speak for themselves,” said Chairman Timothy J. Reckart. “We are pleased to provide this opportunity to all of the candidates for governor and gratified that they have agreed to participate in a debate that truly belongs to the voters of Arizona.”
O’Connor House has a vision to create an Arizona and a nation where important policy decisions affecting our future are made through a process of civil discussion, critical analysis of facts and informed participation of all citizens. O’Connor House is encouraging community groups, neighborhood organizations, students and families to watch the debate together and discuss it as a civic engagement opportunity, and to cast a more informed ballot.
The 2014 General Election will take place Nov. 4. Early voting begins Oct. 9.
