Rochester CBS-affiliate WROC is partnering with the League of Women Voters to host a debate between incumbent Louise Slaughter (D) and Maggie Brooks (R), who are competing for the U.S. House of Representatives seat in New York’s 25th district.
The debate, which will be held on October 30, is so far the first debate the candidates have committed to in this campaign. It will be held at Nazareth College. Moderators and other details will be announced in the coming weeks, according to the station.
“It is important for us to present the type of forum,” news director Bryan Queen said in statement. “It enables the voting public the opportunity to understand the issues and candidates’ positions on these issues.”
