Debate to be Available Online
For years, the Virginia Bar Association has hosted the first debate between statewide candidates, either at the Homestead or Greenbrier resorts. This year is no exception.
But for the first time, everyone will be able to watch the debate instead of just the few hundred lawyers attending the association's annual meeting.
This time, the association in conjunction with the soon-to-be-launched Web site, VirginiaTalks.com, will offer a free, live and interactive statewide broadcast of the debate to be held July 25 at 11 a.m.
Viewers of the live streaming video will be able to join a simultaneous, online discussion during the debate and to submit questions that may be asked during the debate. The debate will be available online through Election Day.
"We're honored to partner with the Virginia Bar Association to provide access to this debate across the Commonwealth and beyond," said Jason Roop, editor in chief of VirginiaTalks.com. "The VBA should be commended for launching this important election season by transforming this special event into one that can be seen and heard by voters everywhere."
