All voters are invited to listen to the Senator candidate’s debate on ABC 7.
ABC 7 will partner with the League of Women Voters (LWVIL) and the Illinois Broadcasters Association (IBA) to broadcast a commercial free debate that will be aired on ABC 7 on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 with ABC's Chief Political Correspondent George Stephanopoulos as moderator of the debate from 10:35-11:35 p.m. between what is considered the main Illinois senatorial candidates.
The debate will take place at the ABC 7 Studios, 190 North State Street. The senatorial debate will include panelists Charles Thomas, political editor, ABC 7; Andy Shaw, executive director of the Better Government Association; and Kerry Lester, political reporter at the Daily Herald.
During the debates, the panel of journalists will ask candidates a series of pertinent questions on issues key to the voters of Illinois.
It is with great hope that candidates Lealan M. Jones (G), Mike Labno (L) Alyson Kennedy (Socialist Worker/Write-in) will also be present at this debate to truly get all the candidates view on the key issues to the voters of Illinois.
In addition to airing on ABC 7's main channel, the hour-long debates will air live on ABC 7's 7.2 Channel at 7:00 p.m. and be streamed live on abc7chicago.com. ABC 7's 7.2 is available on Comcast channel 217 and Wide Open West channel 219. 10:35-11:35pm Tuesday, October 19, 2010
