U.S. Senate Candidates to Debate on 'Off the Record'
By JEANIE CROOPE
The three Republican candidates running for Michigans U.S. Senate seat have agreed to do their one and only televised debate at WKAR-TV on Thursday, August 2, at 2 p.m.
Pete Hoekstra, Clark Durant and Randall Hekman have agreed to a single moderator, no-rules format in a program to be anchored by senior capitol correspondent Tim Skubick.
This special election-year edition of Off the Record will be broadcast by Michigan public television stations across the state as part of the Off the Record series.
The 2 p.m. taping will be webcast live at WKAR.org....
This "Off the Record" special will be aired on WKAR-TV Friday, August 3, at 8:30 p.m., with rebroadcasts Saturday at 6 p.m. on WKAR World and Sunday, August 5, at 12:30 and 11:30 p.m. on WKAR-TV. It will be available for on-demand viewing at video.wkar.org beginning Friday.
Off the Record is produced by WKAR-TV in East Lansing, Michigan and is distributed statewide. Funding for the production of Off the Record is provided in part by Truscott Rossman, MichiganFood & Beverage Association, Michigan Business & Professional Association and Hager Fox.
Any insight on why so late in the year to pick a candidate?
Here in Indiana the campaign started right after the May primary.
August is just when we hold our primary. I’m OK with it because things have pretty much settled having it this late.
So what do you guys think?
Me? I'm lucky to have heard two of their names before... Could someone please relieve Debby of these duties and just make Michigan a tie for good verses evil rather than bad copying bad.
I’ll vote for any of them but I think Hoekstra has the best chance. He’s a GOPe type but well to the right of someone like McCain or Snowe.
Any MI-Freeper passion going out there for anyone but Pete???
Not that Hokstra is a problem....
I like what I hear about Durant but I really don’t have a favorite. I think my final vote will be decided in the booth for this race.
