Republican Rep. John Faso will debate his Democratic opponent Antonio Delgado on Oct. 23 in an event hosted by Spectrum News.
The debate will be held at the Woodstock Playhouse and moderated by Capital Tonight’s Liz Benjamin and Spectrum News Washington reporter Jeevan Vittal.
Tickets will be made available to the public at a future date through the Woodstock Playhouse.
The race for the 19th congressional district is considered one of the top battleground elections in the country as Democrats vie to wrest control of the House of Representatives from the GOP majority.
Faso is seeking a second term. A Spectrum News/Siena College poll in August found Faso leading Delgado 45 percent to 40 percent.
