Two candidates vying to become the state’s top prosecutor will debate in suburban Harrisburg tonight. The Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) and Pennsylvania Legislative Correspondents’ Association (PLCA) have teamed up to host the forum at the Widener School of Law’s Harrisburg campus.
Democrat Kathleen Kane is a prosecutor from northeastern Pennsylvania, and Republican David Freed is currently the Cumberland County District Attorney. The attorney general’s office is an open seat this year as Linda Kelly agreed not to seek election when she was nominated to fill out the unexpired term of now-Governor Tom Corbett.
The public is invited to attend tonight’s debate, which will take place in room A180 of the Law School Administration Building. Doors open at 6pm, and the debate begins at 7pm. If you can’t make it in person, the event will be broadcast live on PCN TV.
