Let the fall political season begin. Republicans in the 1st Legislative District are now calling for their democratic opponents to agree to a series of debates in each of the three counties in the district. Democrats currently hold the senate and two assembly seats in the district. Republican senate candidate Dave DeWeese would like to change the format of the debates and have more dialogue between the candidates themselves. Republicans also wish to have local radio air the debates; WCZT has been active in many of the recent local political debates with audio presentations on the radio, and web streaming on the internet.
