Candidates in Michigan’s November Gubernatorial election will appear in two debates in October. Democrat Gretchen Whitmer and Republican Bill Schuette will appear in debates hosted by WOOD-TV (Grand Rapids) on October 12 and WDIV-TV (Detroit) on October 24.
In Grand Rapids, Rick Albin, host of WOOD-TV’s political show “To the Point,” will moderate then first debate, to be held at the WOOD-TV studios. In Detroit, WDIV-TV’s Kimberly Gill and Devin Scillian will moderate the second debate. That debate will be held at the WDIV-TV studios.
Each debate includes questions from the moderators and will permit opening and closing statements. Debates will be televised by the hosting stations, streamed online and likely will be simulcast across Michigan on other stations.
