A Debate Debate in Nassau

It’s still unclear whether Republican Maureen O’Connell will participate in scheduled candidate forum tonight along with Democrat Craig Johnson.

The event is supposed to start at 7 p.m. in Manhasset, hosted by the League of Women Voters. The organization’s Nassau office of said that both candidates were invited and as of this morning, only Johnson has confirmed. I called O’Connell’s campaign and asked if they’ll be there. I’m still waiting for the answer.

On Monday, O’Connell and Johnson participated in a debate with News12 that will air on February 1st and again on the 3rd and 4th.

Yesterday, both candidates met jointly with Newsday’s editorial board, according to Johnson’s campaign. And on February 2nd, Channel 55 will air a joint interview with both candidates.
