Dan vs. Dan: The two front-runners in the NC District 9 special election
The top contenders in the 9th Congressional District special election and all Democrats running at-large for Charlotte City Council will debate live this week.
Republican Dan Bishop and Democrat Dan McCready will meet Wednesday night in a one-hour debate sponsored by the Charlotte Observer and WBTV. The debate starts at 7 p.m. and will be televised live on WBTV.
Also at 7 p.m. Wednesday, WFAE will broadcast a live forum among the seven Democrats competing in the at-large primary. The seven are running for four seats. Only one Republican is running at-large in the November election.
The WFAE forum, hosted by Mike Collins, will be rebroadcast Thursday morning at 9 a.m. on Charlotte Talks.
Both the special congressional election and the city primary are on Sept. 10. Early voting has already begun.
