On October 8, tune into a public debate for Washington State U.S. Senate seat with Maria Cantwell (D) and Susan Hutchison (R). Coordinated by the Washington State Debate Coalition, the event will be moderated by Mary Nam (KOMO 4) and Essex Porter (KIRO 7).

Where: Broadcast live at 12:30 p.m. on KING 5 and KIRO 7. Delayed broadcast at 7:00 p.m. on KCTS, TVW, and KONG. Livestreamed on many Coalition partner websites. Live radio broadcast on KUOW.

In order to make sure the Washington State Debate Coalition has diverse questions that cover multiple topics, we are asking residents to submit their questions in advance for selection. Submitted questions will be reviewed, selected and edited for brevity.

Here are some suggested questions for submission:

“How will you work to strengthen Social Security for current and future generations?”

“How will you work to support family caregivers?”

“How will you work to lower prescription drug prices and reduce costs for Americans?”

“How will you work to preserve and strengthen Medicare for current beneficiaries and future generations?”

“How will you work to maintain Medicaid for the most vulnerable Americans?”

Americans 50 and older are the nation’s most powerful voting bloc and we need to hold politicians accountable and make them pay attention to the issues that matter to 50+ Americans.
