The first debate for the US Senate seat in California will be held Monday, April 25 at the University of the Pacific in Stockton; for those of us in Southern California, watching the debate via a live stream is the only way to see it live unless you want to wait at KCOP TV to air it at 10PM.
From the press release:
University of the Pacific is proud to partner with KCRA 3 and the San Francisco Chronicle to sponsor the first U.S. Senate Debate among five leading candidates vying to succeed Sen. Barbara Boxer, who has served California since 1992.
The live televised debate will take place at 6 p.m. Monday, April 25, on Pacific’s Stockton Campus. In addition to airing live on KCRA 3, the debate will be live-streamed on this website.
The debate will also air live on KSBW Action News 8 in Monterey; NBC Bay Area, serving San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose; and 10News San Diego. My 13 KCOP in Los Angeles will air the broadcast at 10 p.m. Monday. To watch the stream, you’ll have to go to this site just before 6 PM and see the link. The debate will be televised live in the Bay area and in San Diego.
This is the first opportunity to watch California AG Kamala Harris take on Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez; the three Republicans in the room — Tom Del Beccaro, Duf Sundheim, and Ron Unz — are likely to be eaten alive by both Democrats. The latest Survey USA poll — one conducted with the largest number of respondents and with the smallest margin of error — shows Sanchez has pulled to within 4 points of Harris. The AG is feeling the heat as her fundraising emails reference a Republican-backed PAC that’s set up to benefit Sanchez (its a stretch to call it a Republican PAC at best).
