The first debate between Tom Corbett and Dan Onorato will take place Sept. 27, according to news reports yesterday. Corbett leads Onorato by 9.3% according to a RealClearPolitics average.
From the Pocono Record:
Aides to Republican Tom Corbett and Democrat Dan Onorato said Friday that the candidates plan to attend a debate at an annual Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry dinner in Hershey. Former ABC News anchor Ted Koppel will moderate. The election is Nov. 2. Also invited to debate are the two candidates for U.S. Senate, Joe Sestak and Pat Toomey. Neither has accepted the invitation yet.
This first debate marks a milestone; Onorato had originally called for 14 debates across the Commonwealth earlier this summer.
