VIRGINIA BEACH, VA— Today, Congresswoman Elaine Luria’s reelection campaign announced the debate and forum schedule for Virginia’s Second Congressional District race.
“I look forward to engaging in a spirited debate on the issues most important to Coastal Virginians like affordable, quality health care, ensuring our veterans receive the benefits they’ve earned, and rebuilding our economy and public health system after the COVID-19 crisis,” said Congresswoman Luria, “Scott Taylor has a lot to answer for. From failing to show up for critical votes after losing re-election to the election fraud investigation into his campaign, Taylor continues to disappoint Coastal Virginians.”
Congresswoman Luria’s campaign released the following debates and forums from constituency groups from across Coastal Virginia:
- A forum hosted by the League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan civic organization dedicated to empowering women to play a larger role in our democracy, on October 8th.
- A debate hosted by local NAACP chapters and the Virginia Beach Interdenominational Ministers Conference on October 10th, where candidates will discuss racial justice issues and how we can address inequities in the Black community.
- A forum hosted by the Citizens for a Better Eastern Shore on October 13th to discuss the issues unique to the Eastern Shore community.
- A televised debate hosted by WTKR (Channel 3) on October 20th.
- A debate hosted by the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce on October 22nd.
In 2018, Scott Taylor dropped out of a televised debate hosted by WHRO amid his election fraud scandal and refused to participate in any debates that were not ticketed events hosted by the business community. Taylor’s campaign is still under active investigation with more indictments likely to come. Unlike Scott Taylor in 2018, Congresswoman Luria will participate in five discussions on the issues important to her constituents.
