OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – On Sunday, Congresswoman Kendra Horn (OK-5) announced the first debate of the general election for Oklahoma’s 5th District, scheduled for October 8. The debate between Congresswoman Horn and her opponent will be hosted by OETA in partnership with Oklahoma Watch, and broadcast live statewide on OETA at 7:OOPM CT.
“This debate will be another opportunity to talk about my work fighting for public education, standing up for affordable, quality health care, and getting the job done for Oklahoma,” said Congresswoman Kendra Horn. “During my first term, I’ve accomplished a lot for our state, including twenty-three bills signed into law by the president, from help for small businesses to military housing reforms. I have a record I’m proud to run on.”
“We need to heal the political divisiveness in this country. I know we have more that unites us than divides us, and that’s why talking to and hearing from Oklahomans is an important part of my job. I’ve hosted a record number of town halls and was named one of the most accessible freshman members of Congress. Debates and town halls that bring voters together from across the political spectrum are an important part of the solution.”
The first debate will broadcast live on OETA’s statewide network and will be available to stream at OETA.tv. The debate will be moderated by OETA’s Vice President of Production Susan Cadot and Oklahoma Watch journalist Paul Monies.
Last Thursday, Congresswoman Horn announced a live debate on News 9 scheduled for October 13. The OETA debate will be the first of the general election.
