AETN has announced the schedule for debates by candidates for four statewide and four congressional races. This is a rare opportunity to see all the candidates together in each race because most incumbents (all Republicans) have been avoiding appearances with opponents.

All the debates will be taped in advance and aired later, Oct. 8 through Oct. 12. But the public will be able to attend the one-hour debates, all to be held in the Reynolds PerformanceHall at UCA. AETN also will stream the debates online.
