The People’s Debate, sponsored by AARP VA, League of Women Voters VA, WTVR and WCVE, has been a must-do campaign event for statewide candidates. Current Governor Bob McDonnell faced Senator Creigh Deeds at the People’s Debate in 2009, while current U.S. Senator Tim Kaine debated former Senator George Allen in 2012. The 2012 debate was seen by more than 200,000 voters across the Commonwealth, being carried live in every television market in Virginia as well as C-SPAN.
We want to ensure that The People’s Debate will take place, because most voters can’t attend a debate hosted by lawyers at a fancy resort, or a debate organized by a business group with a pricey entrance fee. We need your help to make it happen!
Please take one of the following actions:
1) Please call Ken Cuccinelli for Governor at 703-766-0635 and ask him to take part in The People’s Debate this year against Terry McAuliffe!
2) Email Ken Cuccinelli for Governor using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and ask him to take part in The People’s Debate.
