Want the chance to have Missouri political candidates answer to you?
At the Missouri Press Association conference on Friday, Sept. 21, two Missourian reporters will participate as panelists during the gubernatorial and U.S. Senate debates.
Hilary Niles will ask questions of incumbent Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon, Republican challenger Dave Spence and Libertarian Jim Higgins. Nassim Benchaabane will ask questions of incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, Republican challenger Todd Akin and Libertarian Jonathan Dine.
The gubernatorial debate will begin at 9:15 a.m. and the U.S. Senate debate will begin at 10:45 a.m. Both are being held at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia.
As Missourian reporters, Niles and Benchaabane will be asking questions on your behalf.
What issues do you want to hear about from the candidates? What proposal of theirs do you want more explanation for? What issues have they avoided that you want them to answer?
