The Tennessee Public Television Council (TPTC) and the League of Women Voters Memphis and Shelby County will offer voters a chance to hear from each of the four Republican candidates for Tennessee governor. “TN Gubernatorial Forum: Republican Edition” will air live on WLJT, Channel 11 and across the state on public television stations on May 25 from 7-8:30 p.m. It will also air May 29 at 6:30 p.m. and May 30 at 2:30 p.m. on “The Tennessee Channel.”
The public can send questions in now for the candidates at TNdecides@wkno.org. Some of the questions may be chosen to be used during the televised forum.
The forum will feature four panelists posing questions to all four Republican candidates: Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam, Joe Kirkpatrick, Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp. It will be moderated by Memphis Daily News publisher Eric Barnes. Mike WcWherter, Democrat, unopposed in the May primary, won by default. Therefore no Democratic forum is planned.
