Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, and Republican Matt Doheny will face off in a debate at Jefferson Community College, Watertown, on Oct. 25, the campaigns said.
The debate will be hosted by Liz Benjamin and Bill Carey, and will be carried live on YNN.
Watertown will serve as the capstone debate before the Nov. 6 election. Two others are taking place, one in Plattsburgh and the other in Glens Falls.
Here are the details for those other two debates, according to the Doheny campaign and confirmed by the Owens campaign:
"Glens Falls market: 8 p.m. Sept. 25 in the auditorium of Queensbury High School, 409 Aviation Road. The one-hour event, sponsored by the Adirondack Chamber of Commerce is free and open to the public. It will be rebroadcast on Mountain Lake PBS at 8 p.m. Oct. 4.
Plattsburgh market: 7 p.m. Oct. 16 at the Valcour Conference Center at SUNY Plattsburgh, 3712 State Route 9. The event will be broadcast live on WPTZ-TV and live-streamed on WPTZ.com, but is not open to the general public."
Additionally, Channel 7 is planning on having a half-hour discussion with each of the candidates separately, which will air sometime in mid-October, TV news maven Scott Atkinson told me today.
And Mayor Jeff Graham says that state Senate candidate Amy Tresidder will appear on his show on Monday. A Democrat of Oswego County, Mrs. Tresidder faces state Sen. Patty Ritchie, R-Heuvelton, on Nov. 6.
