Michigan governor debate: Watch Gretchen Whitmer, Tudor Dixon live on Oct. 25
Michigan’s gubernatorial candidates Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Republican challenger Tudor Dixon will face off at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Oakland University in Rochester.
Watch a live video stream of tonight's debate on this post.
The debate is hosted by Oakland University’s Center for Civic Engagement, WXYZ-TV, WXMI-TV and WSYM-TV. It will last one hour and is moderated by Chuck Stokes of WXYZ, Elle Meyers of WSYM and Doug Reardon of WXMI.
This is the candidates’ second televised debate, but the first that will be broadcasted statewide. The first debate took place Oct. 13 in Grand Rapids but wasn’t televised in the state’s largest market, delivering a blow to Dixon, who has trailed for much of the campaign but in recent polls appears to be closing the gap.
