Rep. Don Young’s campaign announced that he’ll be participating in three debates against Democratic challenger Forrest Dunbar. Young, who has been in Congress since 1973, hasn’t in the past been overly generous with time debating opponents, particularly those didn’t appear to have much to offer, and there’s been a few of those throughout the years.
These debates should be among the best of the election season. When he’s on, Young is a very strong, lively debater, and though Dunbar is a political neophyte, he’s smart and is said to be confident in a crowd.
Here’s the details:
- Kodiak Chamber of Commerce Fisheries Debate— Wednesday, October 1, 2014
- Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce General Forum — Tuesday, October 28, 2014
- Debate for the State: Alaska Public Media — Thursday, October 30, 2014
