More tickets have been released for tomorrow night’s big debate in the 1st Congressional District race, the sole televised debate of the campaign. It starts at 8 p.m. Mountain time, 7 p.m. Pacific, at the Idaho Capitol Auditorium; free tickets are available here. In addition to taking place before a live audience, the debate will be broadcast live statewide on Idaho Public Television; it’s part of the “Idaho Debates,” sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the Idaho Press Club.
I’m on the reporter panel, along with Idaho Statesman reporter Dan Popkey and Associated Press reporter Todd Dvorak. Candidates debating are 1st District Congressman Walt Minnick, his Democratic challenger Raul Labrador, and independent Dave Olson.
