VBA will host first gubernatorial debate

Plans are taking shape for the traditional first debate between candidates for Virginia’s governorship at the Virginia Bar Association Summer Meeting at The Homestead.

The debate is set for Saturday, July 20, at 11 a.m.

Both Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli and Democratic contender Terry McAuliffe plan to attend, said Marilyn Shaw with the VBA. A media announcement Tuesday stated that both candidates have “acknowledged” their invitations. Shaw explained she used the less-than-definite term simply because McAuliffe’s nomination is not official yet.

“We have commitments. We’re on their schedules. Everybody plans to be there,” Shaw said.
