Three Reno news organizations are teaming up to provide a debate on Thursday, Aug. 25, two days before early voting begins. The debate will last one hour, beginning at 6 p.m.
All four candidates in the race to fill the U.S. House seat left open by Dean Heller confirmed they will attend.
It’s a collaborative effort between the Reno Public Radio 88.7 FM (NPR), KNPB-TV Channel 5 (PBS), and the Reno Gazette-Journal.
KNPB Channel 5 will broadcast the first half-hour of the debate live. Reno Public Radio 88.7 (KUNR-FM) will air the full hour. Arrangements are being made to allow simulcasts on other broadcast stations.
Limited public seating will be available, with free tickets to be offered online on a first-come first-served basis.
