McAuliffe, Cuccinelli to Face Off in Live Debate

Posted: Updated:

Virginia gubernatorial candidates Ken Cuccinelli and Terry McAuliffe will face off for the first time in a live debate. 

PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff will moderate the Virginia Bar Association debate Saturday morning at the Homestead resort in Hot Springs, Virginia. 

Political experts say you can expect spirited discussion, but say it's still too early in the campaign for either side to throw down the gauntlet. 

"It's early in the campaign but this is a nice first example of how these two are going to be able to lay out their vision for Virginia," Brian Moran, a 2009 gubernatorial candidate, said over the phone. 

"I don't think there will be any body blows or haymakers thrown; it'll be spirited but it won't be bloody," Chris Saxman, a former state legislator, said over the phone. 

The debate begins at 11 a.m. Saturday. To watch it streamed live, click here.
