State attorney general candidates Bob Ferguson and Reagan Dunn made quite an impression during their crisp, confrontational first debate in June.
Robert Mak of King5-TV reported that the warm-up act, Ferguson and Dunn, “stole the show” from debate headliners, Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna, who are running for governor.
Worry not, political nerds, more Ferguson-Dunn debates are coming. The two campaigns have agreed to several already. Here are details:
Wednesday, Sept. 12, 6:30-7:30 pm. Location: Seattle Times offices, 1000 Denny Way. Sponsored by the Washington Coalition for Open Government and The Seattle Times. Broadcast on KUOW and TVW.
Tuesday, Sept. 18, 12:00-1:30 pm. Location: Town Hall, 1119 8th Avenue, Seattle. Sponsored by Seattle CityClub, Henry M. Jackson Foundation and the Slade Gorton International Policy Center. Broadcast by the Seattle Channel.
Tuesday, Oct. 2. Time, exact location in Yakima, and other details to be announced. Sponsored by Association of Washington State Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, KCTS public broadcasting stations and the Yakima Herald-Republic.
Stay tuned. Ferguson has agreed to a couple more debates that Dunn’s campaign is still considering.
