Democratic candidates for Governor debate in Bristol
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - The five Democratic candidates for Governor will meet Thursday for the second of four debates.
Democratic party chairwoman and Highland County native Susan Swecker said it was important to hold a debate in southwest Virginia.
“I believe deeply in reaching out to all voters and you can’t just ignore a part of our Commonwealth,” Swecker told WDBJ7 Wednesday night. “A vote is a vote. People are important everywhere. So one of the things quickly I said, we have to go to southwest Virginia.”
The debate begins at 7 p.m. Thursday. The Democratic Party of Virginia will stream the debate on its website:
