At this time, this is the only debate the two candidates have agreed upon.
The one-hour debate will be broadcast live at 8 p.m. and will be moderated by WPTV anchor/political reporter Michael Williams and include panelists from the Palm Beach Post and Scripps Treasure Coast newspapers.
“This is one of the most closely-watched races in Florida and we are pleased to present this to the voters,” said WPTV Vice President and General Manager Steve Wasserman. “This will give voters a chance to compare the candidates as they confront the issues. We have developed a format that is informative for viewers while giving the candidates an opportunity to explain their positions on issues.”
Under the format of this debate, the candidates will each be given one minute to answer a question. They will then have 30 seconds each to answer to answer a follow-up question. It’s the moderator’s discretion to then add follow-up questions.
