Republican Gubernatorial debate airing on ABC57 Tuesday

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- On Tuesday night, four Republican candidates for Governor of Indiana will take the stage in Indianapolis for a 7 p.m. debate that will be broadcast on ABC57. 

According to reporting by FOX59, who will be hosting the debate in their studio, recent polling was done to determine which candidates would be allowed to participate in the debate. The candidates who polled over five percent and will be taking the stage on Tuesday night are U.S. Senator Mike Braun (R-Ind.), former Indiana Secretary of Commerce Brad Chambers, lieutenant governor Suzanne Crouch, and former president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation Eric Doden.

The two Republican candidates who were not allowed in this debate due to their polling numbers Indiana’s former attorney general Curtis Hill (2.4 percent) and Jamie Reitenour (1.6 percent).

Indiana's former superintendent of public instruction Jennifer McCormick will be the only Democratic candidate for governor in the Primary Election.

Polling also showed that 43.3 percent Indiana Republicans who participated in the poll were undecided at that point on which Republican candidate they would vote for in May’s primary.

The debate is scheduled for an hour and will air on ABC57 starting on 7 p.m. Tuesday night.
