Congressional debate set Oct. 18
The 8th Congressional District debate on WVIA-TV will take place earlier than expected.
The debate between U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright, the Democrat from Moosic, and Republican Jim Bognet of Hazle Twp. will happen live from the station’s Jenkins Twp. studios Oct. 18 at 7 p.m.
Originally, the debate was set for Oct. 28, but the station agreed to host the debate earlier because of deadlines for mail-in voting. The deadline for applying for a mail-in ballot is Oct. 27.
