BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Oregon State University-Cascades, NewsChannel 21 and the City Club of Central Oregon will host a live, televised and livestreamed debate on Tuesday, Sept. 27 featuring the three leading candidates for Oregon governor.

The 90-minute debate will be the only gubernatorial debate to take place in Central Oregon and will be televised from the OSU-Cascades campus at 6 p.m.

“We are pleased to collaborate with NewsChannel 21, City Club of Central Oregon and many Oregon State University partners to help inform Central Oregon and Oregon voters in advance of the November election,” said Andrew Ketsdever, interim vice president of OSU-Cascades. “Debates such as this are in keeping with the university’s mission to engage with and inform Oregonians.”
