Facebook group to host Democratic U.S. Senate debate May 4 on Zoom
Democratic U.S. Senate candidates Ben Pursley of Boise and David Roth of Idaho Falls have agreed to a Zoom debate hosted by the Facebook group Idaho Women for Biden/Harris.
Please register here for the debate and please share through your email lists and on your social media.
IW4B/H is a community of more than 10,400 Idaho women — Democrats, Republicans and unaffiliated voters.
The winner of the May 17 primary between Roth and Pursley will face longtime incumbent U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo in November. Idaho Women for Biden/Harris co-leads Betty Richardson and Kassie Cerami announced the debate this morning.
“We are thrilled to host what will likely be the only meeting between these two candidates before the May 17th primary election,” Richardson said. “We urge our members and all Idahoans to participate and to submit questions.”
Logistical support will be provided by the Idaho Democratic Party, and anyone can get the free zoom link by going to Idahodems. org and clicking on “Events.”
“This is an excellent example of democracy at work,” Cerami said.
“We are grateful to the Democratic Party for its support, and we urge all Idahoans to take advantage of what will likely be their only opportunity to hear these two candidates answer questions submitted by Idaho voters.” The debate will begin at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, May 4, and will last 90 minutes.
It will be moderated by Idaho Women for Biden/Harris member Michelle Hicks, a communications specialist and former broadcaster in the Treasure Valley.
Questions must be submitted before midnight on Monday, May 2, and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All questions must contain the questioner’s name, address and phone number, but only first names and cities of residence will be used during the debate.
