Tenney-Brindisi New York 22 Debate Schedule
Candidates and media organizations in the New York's 22nd Congressional District are shoring up debate schedules as Election Day 2018 approaches.
WIBX reported last week that incumbent Republican Claudia Tenney's campaign had agreed to three debates with Democrat Anthony Brindisi this fall. Tenney's campaign has since added two 'accepted debates'. Brindisi's camp issued a release Wednesday saying it had agree to six different debates with Tenney - however, it should be noted that the candidates aren't necessarily agreeing to the same ones.
Proposed forums hosted by the League of Women Voters of Broome and Tioga Counties, and Spectrum News are the two - as of this posting - that have been agreed upon by both campaigns.
NY-22 Debates agreed upon by Claudia Tenney and Anthony Brindisi:
- League of Women Voters of Broome and Tioga Counties. November 1, 2018 at PBS Media Studios in Vestal, NY, 8:00-9:00 p.m.
- Spectrum News - details not yet available.
Tenney's release last week said it had also accepted a debate invite from Americans for Restoring the Constitution, an organization who NY chapter website says it:
Americans for Restoring the Constitution (AFRTC) is a grassroots effort to educate the public about Constitutional principles and legislation past and present coming from Washington DC.
AFRTC has two primary educational objectives: First, it is dedicated to teaching principles of the Constitution, as they relate to local, state and national issues, according to the original intent of our Founding Fathers. Second, AFRTC will help to keep the public informed on elected officials views and positions on matters of interest through our Legislative Watchdog committee.
The AFRTC debate was not listed on Brindisi's release.
Additionally, the Tenney campaign has agreed to debate offers from the Rome Area Chamber of Commerce and the Herkimer County Chamber.
The four other debates the Utica Democrat's camp says it will do are hosted by the League of Women Voters Utica-Rome, Temple Concord in Binghamton, League of Women Voters or Cortland County, and, our very own WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning.
We will update this post to include debate details that both camps have agreed to participate in.
