The second, and likely last, debate between Dino Rossi and Patty Murray is scheduled for 7 p.m. Oct. 17 in Seattle at the KOMO-TV studios.
Murray and Rossi will debate the week before in Spokane, at 7 p.m. Oct. 14, in a debate jointly sponsored and broadcast live by KSPS-TV and KXLY-TV. Getting the two campaigns to reach agreement for timing on the second debate was a bit of a problem until Tuesday evening, a KOMO spokesman said.
Both will be live. The Spokane debate features a moderator, a panel of reporters and a studio audience. The Seattle debate will have two moderators, a pair of KOMO anchors, and no panel.
The Seattle debate will be broadcast on a delayed basis in Spokane on KXLY-TV. We’ll report the time and date when that information becomes available.
