(HARRISBURG, PA)—Keystone Progress announced that it is hosting a second major debate at the 2014 Pennsylvania Progressive Summit (www.paprogressivesummit.org) in addition to the already-scheduled gubernatorial debate.
Brad Koplinski, Mark Smith, Brenda Alton and Mike Stack will face questions from an audience made up of progressive activists and leaders from across the state. (Candidates listed in order of confirmation of attendance.)
All other potential and declared candidates were invited to participate but have not yet responded.
The debate will be held on March 1, 2014 at 12:00 PM at the Hilton Harrisburg. It is expected that one thousand progressive leaders and activists will be in attendance at the Summit.
“We are excited about the impact that our debate will have,” said Michael Morrill, executive director of Keystone Progress. “Since this is the first Lieutenant Governor debate it is an incredible opportunity for the progressive community to set the agenda for the entire campaign.”
Questions will come from the sponsoring organizations and from the audience, which will be made up of participants in the Pennsylvania Progressive Summit. Hundreds of progressive grassroots and netroots leaders and activists will be gathering the weekend of the debate to network and discuss the progressive agenda for 2014 and beyond.
This is the fifth Pennsylvania Progressive Summit, and the third in Harrisburg. The Summit is organized by Keystone Progress,
