(WJRT) - (08/09/18) - Fresh off of wins in the gubernatorial primary, both Michigan front-runners are already in talks about holding debates ahead of the November general election.
Republican candidate Bill Schuette was the first to speak up, proposing a minimum of three televised debates.
Democratic candidate Gretchen Whitmer echoed that, taking it one step further in defining the topics they should focus on.
Schuette says families deserve to know the records of the candidates and know where they'll steer the state on issues affecting their paychecks and children's futures.
Whitmer's campaign answered that call with her suggested specifics.
Her proposal is one in Detroit focused on education and skills training, one in Flint on clean water and infrastructure, and one in Grand Rapids to discuss access to affordable health care.
The two teams aim to finalize a debate schedule in the coming weeks.
