Granite State Debates start Wednesday night with Democrats
Just days before the Sept. 11 primary, the New Hampshire Union Leader and WMUR resume a traditional partnership, the Granite State Debates.
Three Democratic candidates for governor — Jackie Cilley, Bill Kennedy and Maggie Hassan — debate at 7 p.m. on Wednesday. The two major GOP contenders, Ovide Lamontagne and Kevin Smith, meet at the same time the next night.
Questions from the public are welcome on any topic relevant to the future of the state. Please send your questions, in written or video form, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two weeks later, the candidates nominated in the primary meet in three forums focusing on economic issues. These events are a joint project of the Union Leader, the New Hampshire Business and Industry Association, New Hampshire Public Radio and New Hampshire Public Television. Their “Candidate Forums on the Economy,” which effectively kick off the general election campaign, have quickly become a New Hampshire political tradition. The schedule: U.S. House (1st District) on Monday, Sept. 17; U.S. House (2nd District) on Tuesday, Sept. 18; and governor on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Questions for these forums are also welcome. The topics must be focused on economic and business issues. Please send proposed questions to email@example.com.
