We’re at the Bing Crosby theater in Spokane, where the first gubernatorial and attorney general debate of the election season is set to take place this afternoon. The debate will be carried live on TVW and streamed on the web.
Attorney general candidates Democrat Bob Ferguson and Republican Regan Dunn will debate at 2 p.m., followed by gubernatorial candidates Republican Rob McKenna and Democrat Jay Inslee at 3:30 p.m.
Each debate lasts an hour, and the candidates are expected to take media questions after each debate — stay tuned, we hope to bring you live interviews from the theater.
Back at our studios in Olympia, we’ll have a live special edition of The Impact offering analysis of the event, both before and after the debates with political reporters Jim Camden of the Spokesman-Review and Jordan Schrader of The News Tribune. That will start at 1:45 p.m.
The debate will be moderated by Austin Jenkins, host of Inside Olympia and a public radio correspondent with Northwest News Network.
