So you can’t make it to the gubernatorial debate sponsored by the Virginia Bar Association at its summer meeting at The Homestead, even though you’re a real political junkie.
Not a problem. The VBA plans to provide live streaming video over the Internet of the exchange between Democrat Creigh Deeds and Republican Bob McDonnell. The video will be available at VirginiaTalks.com, a Web site that Style Weekly Inc. expects to launch soon. If you miss the live debate, it will be available in its entirety online through election day.
Viewers will be able to join in a simultaneous, online discussion during the debate and to submit questions that might be selected for presentation to the candidates.
A debate at the VBA’s summer meeting is the traditional kickoff to races for governor and U.S. Senate in Virginia. This one is set for July 25 at 11 a.m. with Rod Smolla, dean of the Washington and Lee University law school, as moderator.
