Update: Lexington-Rockbridge chamber invites candidates to forum
Update: Sept. 26, 9:55 a.m. The Lexington-Rockbridge County Chamber of Commerce has clarified that the Oct. 24 event is a candidates forum, not a debate.
Questions will be presented to candidates participating in the forum ahead of time.
A chamber representative tells AFP this morning that both Ben Cline and Jennifer Lewis have been invited to participate, and that neither camp has confirmed to the chamber that their candidate will take part.
Original post: Sept. 21, 8:20 p.m. Sixth District Democratic Party nominee Jennifer Lewis has accepted a debate hosted by the Lexington-Rockbridge County Chamber of Commerce, and she’s challenging Republican nominee Ben Cline to attend.
The debate will take place Wednesday, October 24, at 6 p.m.
Lewis had previously indicated that she was willing to debate Cline at events organized by James Madison University, Washington & Lee University, and the Lynchburg League of Women Voters – to no avail.
