Emerson-Sowers debate coming to Rolla Oct. 17

Here's a press release from incumbent Eighth District U.S. Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Cape Girardeau, issued Friday:

[T]he schedule for the series of debates to take place in the race for U.S. Representative from Missouri’s Eighth District has been finalized.

“The people of the Eighth District have a right to know where we stand on the issues now, not just on four evenings in October,” said Emerson. “We look forward to the debates, but until then, I will continue to travel the district sharing our positive vision for economic growth and smaller government.”

Emerson proposed three debates to take place Oct. 11th in Cape Girardeau, October 13th in Poplar Bluff, and October 17th in Rolla, and she accepted a fourth invitation from Mineral Area College to debate on October 18th in Park Hills. A final schedule for the Eighth District Congressional debates is below:
