Two Debates Scheduled In 12th Congressional Race

Two debates are now scheduled for the three candidates in Illinois’ 12th Congressional District race.

One debate will be held October 8 at the Marion Cultural Civic Center and the other will be held October 29 at Lindenwood University in Belleville.

The Southern Illinoisan reports a third debate in September at the SIU-Carbondale campus was in the works, but the three candidates couldn’t agree on a time and date.

Incumbent Democrat Bill Enyart faces Republican Mike Bost and Green Party candidate Paula Bradshaw.
