Douglas County Republican Debate Tuesday Night in Minden

Posted: Updated:
Douglas County Republicans are holding a debate forum tonight to hear from candidates in a number of political races including those running for lieutenant governor.

The governor's race is not expected to bring much competition as Governor Brian Sandoval is an incumbent and there haven't been any high profile challengers from the Democratic party - and that makes the lieutenant governor's race the top of the ticket for statewide races. And the Republicans in that race will both be at the debate, Mark Hutchison and Sue Lowden.

Hutchison has garnered the governor's endorsement, but Sue Lowden has a history in the state senate and made a run for U.S. Senate in 2010. Since both are from Las Vegas, voters in the north really haven't seen much of them, so this debate is expected to be a very good chance to hear both on the issues.

They also have candidates for Douglas County Sheriff and for Assembly District 39.           

You can watch the debate starting at 6pm at the CVIC Hall at 1602 Esmeralda Avenue in Minden.

We'll also have a full wrap-up of the debate on Channel 2 News at 11pm.
