U. S. Senate hopefuls MJ Hegar and State Senator Royce West will participate in a live broadcast "Meet the Candidates" question and answer event on July 2, 7-8 p. m. on KLRN, hosted by the League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area, The League of Women Voters of Texas, and KLRN Public Television.
The candidates are competing in the Democratic primary runoff election on Tuesday, July 14. The winner of the runoff will face Republican U.S. Senator John Cornyn in the general election on November 3. Senator Cornyn ran unopposed in the Republican primary in March.
The event will be broadcast live on KLRN and moderated by T.J. Mayes, host of On the Record, KLRN’s weekly news talk show. A set of identical questions will be posed to each candidate separately for approximately 30 minutes per candidate.
“The League is committed to empowering voters and helping them make informed choices” says Madhu Sridhar, President of the League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area. “We are pleased to partner with KLRN to provide Texans this valuable opportunity to hear directly from the candidates on where they stand on critical and important issues facing the voters.”
