The Citizens League is partnering with BringMeTheNews and the LEAD Project to host a live, interactive debate between Minnesota gubernatorial candidates Mark Dayton (DFL), Tom Emmer (GOP), and Tom Horner (Independence).
The program will be a unique conversation-style debate, where Minnesotans can participate in a question-and-answer session through Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #debateMN. Rick Kupchella, former investigative journalist, TV new anchor, and BringMeTheNews founder, will moderate a conversation between the candidates, posing questions and introducing questions from thought leaders and the general public via social media.
Follow the debate on Twitter at #debateMN.
