Democratic Candidates for Governor to Debate

The three Democratic candidates for governor announced yesterday that they will hold five debates and make three joint appearances throughout the Commonwealth in the weeks leading up to the June 9 Democratic primary.

The campaigns of State Senator Creigh Deeds, former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe and former Delegate Brian J. Moran, issued a joint press release yesterday announcing the debates.

This is an excellent opportunity for gun owners to see the candidates and get their views on issues important to gun owners as the candidates generally hang around at the end of the debates to meet voters.

The following debates are scheduled:
April 19: Farm Team debate in Williamsburg
April 23: Virginia Education Association's convention debate in Hampton
April 28: Sorensen Institute/Danville Register & Bee debate in Danville
April 29: Huffington Post/Not Larry Sabato/Firedog lake/Collegiate Times debate in Blacksburg
May 19: Washington Post/Northern Virginia Community College debate in Annandale

The candidates have also agreed to appear together at several forums.

They will gather April 3 at the Northern Virginia Technology Council/Microsoft Forum in Reston, April 21 at the Crusade for Voters forum in Richmond, and at the Democratic Club of Green Springs forum in Louisa County at a date and time to be determined later.
