The Council for A Better Louisiana and Louisiana Public Broadcasting are partnering once again to host a statewide televised debate in the Louisiana governor’s race.
The forum will be held on September 28th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and broadcast across LPB’s statewide network and in the New Orleans metro area through strategic partnerships. It will originate from the LPB studios in Baton Rouge. Criteria for candidate participation and format will be released at a later date.
CABL has partnered with LPB for more than 25 years to bring the citizens of Louisiana high-quality live debates focused on issues that are important to the future of the state.
“LPB is excited to continue our long-standing tradition of providing these televised forums so that voters can find out where the candidates stand on the issues that people care about,” said Clarence “C.C” Copeland, President and CEO of LPB.
“In this age of social media, CABL believes it is important for candidates to appear in forums like this to tell voters what they will do if elected to the state’s highest office,” said CABL President Barry Erwin. “We are pleased to partner with LPB once again to provide these debates as a public service for the citizens of Louisiana.”
