At this point, it looks like it will be a radio event (kudos to WSVA) but I am hopeful that a TV debate in front of a live audience is in the future. Nothing quite like voters being able to see the candidates and judge their demeanor as well as their words.
Janice Lee Allen will apparently be included in the WSVA debate, but I'm not really sure why. Her campaign has generated little interest and fewer ideas. Her signs are mostly on VDOT rights-of-way rather than placed by permission on private property.
