The Georgia Republican Party has issued the schedule for debates amongst the GOP contenders to succeed Senator Saxby Chambliss. From the presser:
The Georgia Republican Party will host seven debates throughout Georgia for candidates seeking the U.S. Senate seat now held by retiring Senator Saxby Chambliss. By organizing debates in all four corners of the state, the Georgia GOP will provide voters with more access, more information, and more opportunities to interact with the Republican candidates for Senate.
The Georgia GOP will partner with District and County Republicans to organize and promote the following debates:
January 18, 2014 – Adel, Georgia
February 1, 2014 – Kennesaw, Georgia
February 22, 2014 – Gainesville, Georgia
March 8, 2014 – Macon, Georgia
March 29, 2014 – Savannah, Georgia
April 19, 2014 – Augusta, Georgia
May 10, 2014 – Columbus, Georgia
The first debate in Adel will be held at the Cook County High School Performing Arts Center (9900 Georgia Highway 37, Adel, GA 31620).
All debates are on Saturday and will begin promptly at 6PM. Additional details will be released to the media as they become available.
“Organizing debates in all four corners of the state,” eh? I don’t really consider Kennesaw part of the “northwest Georgia” corner per se (since I do actually live in the northwest corner of Georgia and all…), but I kinda understand due to a shorter primary season. Also, not entirely sure what “corner” Adel is in either, but anyway. There you have the debate schedule. Feel free to discuss in the comments below.
