INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The three candidates for Indiana governor are set to face each other for the first of two scheduled televised debates, with Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb’s coronavirus actions likely to be hotly contested.
Holcomb, Democratic challenger Woody Myers, and Libertarian Donald Rainwater on Tuesday night were to take part in debate from separate areas of the WFYI-TV studio in Indianapolis because of COVID-19 precautions.
The debate comes two weeks ahead of Election Day as Indiana is seeing steep increases in coronavirus-related deaths, infections and hospitalizations in the time since Holcomb last month lifted nearly all of Indiana’s coronavirus restrictions on businesses and crowd sizes.
