Colgate’s historic Memorial Chapel will be the site of a live televised debate for the hotly-contested 22nd Congressional District seat, October 20, from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The hour-long debate with co-moderators Liz Benjamin and Nick Reisman of Capital Tonight will feature Independent Martin Babinec, Democrat Kim Myers, and Republican Claudia Tenney in a political showdown with a focus on issues that are of the most importance to New Yorkers living in the enormous 22nd District, which stretches from the shores of Lake Ontario to the Pennsylvania border. With no incumbent following the departure of Congressman Richard Hanna, Ballotpedia.org has labeled the 22nd District a battleground race in the 2016 election.
The debate will air on TWC News in Binghamton, Syracuse, and the Watertown area on channel 200. The 24-hour newschannel will also re-air the debate at 10 p.m. Tickets to attend the event in person are free and can be found at colgate.edu/twcdebate.
