'Virtual-Style' Gubernatorial Debate Taking Place Tuesday Night

Gubernatorial candidates Eric J. Holcomb, Dr. Woodrow Myers, and Donald Rainwater are scheduled to face off in a 'virtual-style' debate on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 6:00 p.m. CT.

The Indiana Debate Commission (IDC) says the first of its two gubernatorial debates will be held as a "virtual-style event."

This means that while candidates Eric J. Holcomb (R), Dr. Woodrow Myers (D), and Donald Rainwater (L), will still participate in-person at the WFYI studios in Indianapolis, they'll be "in separate spaces from each other and the moderator during the one-hour live-streamed event," according to IDC.

The debate will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 6:00 p.m. CT/ 7:00 p.m. ET, and is scheduled to run for one hour.

Two moderators have been selected for the debate: Andrew Downs, associate professor of political science at Purdue University Fort Wayne (PFW) and board member of the commission, will moderate alongside Nadia E. Brown, associate professor and University Faculty Scholar of political science and African American Studies at Purdue University.

Specific topics that will be discussed during the debate haven't been revealed, as all questions for the candidates have been submitted by members of the public.

In addition to the "virtual-style" holding of the first debate, IDC says that no live audience will be present, but that voters whose questions have been selected by the commission may be asking those questions via pre-taped video.

You'll be able to watch the debate LIVE on our website.

The second gubernatorial debate is set for Oct. 27.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
