SD U.S. Senate Candidates Agree To Four Debates

SD U.S. Senate Candidates Agree To Four Debates
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The four candidates running for South Dakota’s open U.S. Senate seat will appear together at four debates this fall.

Former Republican Governor Mike Rounds, Democrat Rick Weiland, and Independent candidates Larry Pressler and Gordon Howie have all accepted an invitation from KELOLAND TV to discuss the issues facing the state and the country during a live primetime forum on October 29 at 7 p.m. CDT. The joint appearance will be broadcast statewide less than a week before voters head to the polls.

The debate schedule kicks off next month when all four candidates are scheduled to appear at Dakotafest in Mitchell on Wednesday August 20 at 2:00 p.m. CDT in the afternoon. That debate is sponsored by South Dakota State University.

The following week the candidates will discuss their differences at the South Dakota State Fair in Huron during an hour-long debate sponsored by South Dakota Farmers Union. The four candidates will appear at the Freedom Stage on the State Fair Fairgrounds at 10 a.m. CDT on Friday August 29.

Besides the KELO-TV forum, the only other televised debate the candidates have committed to is the South Dakota Public Broadcasting debate that is scheduled for Thursday October 23.
