The Atlanta Press Club will host a series of debates this afternoon and next weekend. They will air on Georgia Public Broadcasting or you can watch a livestream here.
The schedule is as follows:
At 4:30pm, the first Debate for Public Service Commission will feature Incumbent Chuck Eaton versus challenger and recent Republican convert Matt Reid. Late word is that Eaton will not participate due to the sudden loss of his Mother on Thursday.
At 5:00pm, Incumbent Stan Wise was scheduled to debate challenger Pam Davidson for the honor of later facing David Staples in the general election for the District 5 PSC seat. Wise is recovering from a tear to his retina and will not be appearing.
At 5:15pm Incumbent Paul Broun is scheduled to debate challenger Stephen Simpson. Broun had earlier agreed to two earlier debates with Simpson which have already occurred. Given the 15 minutes alloted to this debate, it may be safe to presume that Simpson will be the only one to appear.
At 5:30pm, Kent Kingsley and Chip Flanegan will explain why Lynn Westmoreland is a liberal to an empty podium.
At 6:00pm the four candidates who want to take on John Barrow will again attempt to “out-Republican” each other in an effort to turn off swing voters before November’s general election.
Next week, there are debates scheduled for Congressional Districts 7, 11, 4-D, 4-R, and 9 beginning at 4pm.
