Pennsylvania’s Democratic and Republican nominees for U.S. Senate are sharing the floor and debate each other for the first and only time Tuesday night.
Lt. Gov. John Fetterman and Dr. Mehmet Oz will have one hour to convince voters that they should replace U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey in Washington, D.C.
The debate will take place at WHTM studios in the state capital and begin at 8 p.m. WHTM news anchor Dennis Owens and WPXI anchor Lisa Sylvester will serve as moderators.
The event is airing live on nine Nexstar television stations that serve Pennsylvania, including WPHL-TV in Philadelphia, WHTM-TV in Harrisburg, WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh, WTAJ-TV in Johnstown, WBRE-TV and WYOU-TV in Scranton, WJET-TV in Erie, and WYTV-DT in Youngstown, Ohio.
Because of national interest in Pennsylvania’s Senate race, several television stations in New York and D.C. are also airing the debate.
A live fact-check of the debate by WHYY and WITF, WHYY’s partner station in Harrisburg, is available below.
