Jim Justice, businessman and owner of The Greenbrier, and Democratic candidate for governor, announced last Friday he will participate in two statewide debates presented by Press Association and Broadcasters Association.
The first debate is set for Oct. 4, to be hosted by the West Virginia Press Association and the second will be on Oct. 11, organized by the West Virginia Broadcasters Association.
“I’m looking forward to doing two high-quality debates focused on jobs and education,” Justice said. “The people of West Virginia deserve better than a political sideshow. I want to share my vision and new ideas for creating jobs for West Virginia and transforming our education system. Politicians have made debates a circus, and are always trying to hide behind sound bites – not me.”
