Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) and Antonio Delgado will participate in a live debate here at WMHT-TV on October 19th at 1pm with a re-airing that night at 8:30pm.
The race for the 19th Congressional District seat is traditionally one of the most watched and most expensive in the country. A Democrat has not held the seat since 2010, but Barack Obama did win the district in both 2008 and 2012.
The debate will be available over-the-air to both viewers of WMHT and WSKG, the PBS affiliate in Binghamton. It will also be live-streamed here at NYNOW.org.
Note to Guests attending the debate:
- If you did not RSVP, you will be unable to watch in the studio.
- As a courtesy to both of our candidates, we are not allowing any campaign signs, t-shirts or buttons to be worn into our studio.
- We will not tolerate any rude behavior toward either candidate. We also will not allow any cheering or booing after a candidates answer. The only time we will allow applause is when the candidates are introduced and at the end of the broadcast.
- We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
