WFLA will host the first runoff debate between mayoral candidates Robert Blackmon and Ken Welch on Wednesday, Sept. 8.
The pair — a former City Council member and a former County Commissioner — will face off in the non-partisan General Election on Nov. 2 after advancing in the August Primaries as the top two vote-getters.
The debate will be live-streamed on WFLA NOW and will be hosted by the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce at the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg campus. Evan Donovan, News Channel 8 political reporter and host of Battleground Florida, will moderate the debate starting at 5:30 p.m.
