NBC 10 News will bring you the final face-offs before Election Day in Rhode Island’s congressional and U.S. Senate races.
The debates are open to the public. Be part of the live television audience as NBC 10 political reporter Bill Rappleye moderates three debates at Rhode Island College.
The debates will be held Thursday, Nov. 1, at Sapinsley Hall in the Nazarian Center.
The 2nd Congressional District debate will be taped from 1:30-2 p.m. The candidates are U.S. Rep. Jim Langevin, Republican Mike Riley and independent Abel Collins.
The U.S. Senate debate between incumbent Sheldon Whitehouse and Republican challenger Barry Hinkley will be taped from 3 to 3:30 p.m.
The 1st Congressional District debate will be broadcast live from 7:30 to 8 p.m. on NBC 10 and C-SPAN and continue until 8:30 p.m. on turnto10.com and OSN. The candidates are U.S. Rep. David Cicilline, Republican Brendan Doherty and independent David Vogel.
No reservations are needed, but seating capacity is limited to 400 people. Doors open 30 minutes before each of the debates. Because the debates are televised, doors will close once the moderator takes the stage.
