Schreibman and Gibson debate tonight

Tonight, the candidates for New York's 19th Congressional District, Julian Schreibman (Democrat) and Chris Gibson (Republican incumbent), will hold their second debate at 8pm at WMHT-TV in Troy. The station will be broadcasting the debate live on television, as will WSKG-TV in Binghamton.

The first debate between Gibson and Schreibman, held last week at the M. Clifford Miller Middle School in Kingston, was videotaped and livestreamed by the Freeman. (Click the link for a video replay of the debate, as well as the Freeman's news account.)

A third debate will be held at 7pm on Wednesday, October 24 at SUNY Oneonta.

The newly-redrawn 19th Congressional District includes all of Columbia, Delaware, Greene, Sullivan, Schoharie, Otsego and Ulster counties, most of Dutchess and Rensselaer counties, and parts of Broome and Montgomery counties.
