The League of Women Voters of Connecticut, with Cablevision and Hearst Media Services Connecticut, will sponsor a Democratic senatorial primary debate with U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy and former Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, July 22, at the Klein Memorial Auditorium, 910 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport.

"Before voters go to the polls, it is important for them to have the opportunity to determine which candidate would best represent them in the general election, assess what leadership qualities each possesses and how each reacts under pressure," said Pat Donovan, LWV vice president for voter services. "Pre-primary debates help fulfill this need, and offer a unique opportunity for the candidates to present their positions on the important issues that face our country and state."

The debate will be covered by Cablevision and streamed live on Hearst websites. Additionally, the program will be available for rebroadcast by all cable providers. For information, contact Donovan at pad199@optonline.net or visit www.lwvct.org.
