Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff will meet again Thursday morning for their second and final confirmed showdown ahead of Georgia’s 6th District runoff, and both are hoping to energize their supporters while trying to avoid an embarrassing gaffe.
The two rivals in the June 20 contest met at Tuesday’s WSB-TV debate, which was filled with sharp clashes over healthcare policy, the influence of outside money, and other divides in the nationally-watched contest.
The format for Thursday’s debate, held at 9 a.m. at WABE’s Atlanta studios, is likely to encourage lengthier answers from the two rivals. And it also could be the final time voters can hear from both candidates on the same stage: No other debates have been agreed to by both contenders.
It will be broadcast live on WABE 90.1 and stream live at WABE.org and on the WABE app. And it will be televised on PBA30 that evening at 7 p.m.
