Up to six events are being scheduled to host candidates vying for the Governor’s office, as well as those taking part in the Columbus mayoral election. The events will focus on the critical issues facing both the state of Georgia and the city of Columbus.

AFLAC and TSYS are sponsoring the series. Professors from CSU’s political science department, and reporters from WRBL will serve on panels questioning the candidates during the events. CSU communication students will assist in the production of the telecasts.

All of the events will be at 7 p.m. in University Hall on CSU’s main campus. They will be televised live and be open to the public.

The first forum was on Tuesday, March 6 and involved the Republican candidates vying to be Georgia’s next governor. The Democratic gubernatorial forum will take place on Tuesday, April 24. The Columbus Mayoral candidates will debate on May 1.

Events featuring any candidates involved in a run-off will be scheduled between the primary and run-off elections and the nominees of each party will be invited back for a Gubernatorial Debate in October.
