WTCI-PBS and the Chattanooga Times Free Press will host a Republican primary Congressional debate for the citizens of the 3rd Congressional District. Congressman Chuck Fleischmann and the Republican primary challenger, Weston Wamp, have agreed to participate in a debate on July 2 at the WTCI studio at 7540 Bonnyshire Dr.
Dave Flessner, Chattanooga Times Free Press business editor, will moderate the debate.
Viewers can watch the debate broadcast on Wednesday, July 2, at 8 p.m. on WTCI or streaming at wtciTV.org.
“We’re grateful the candidates have agreed to participate in this debate. It’s our mission to inform viewers about the issues that matter in their lives, and we believe the community’s daily newspaper and the community’s PBS station are a perfect fit in making this a reality,” said Paul Grove, president and CEO of WTCI.
