Republican gubernatorial nominee Bill Schuette announced earlier this week that he accepted Democratic nominee Gretchen Whitmer’s invitation to three televised debates but the two campaigns have yet to agree on terms and locations

A statement released by the Schuette campaign proposed debates to take place at WPBT-TV in Traverse City on October 1 or 15, WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids on October 9 and WDIV-TV in Detroit on October 24. Whitmer’s campaign is looking at Flint as a potential debate setting given the water crisis experienced by city’s residents. The MAB will provide updates as debate dates and locations are finalized.
