Missouri Governor Mike Parson and three other candidates will be taking part in a forum this month.
Democrat Nicole Galloway, Libertarian Rik Combs and the Green Party’s Jerome Bauer will also attend at the University of Missouri’s historic Missouri Theatre.
Due to ongoing restrictions in place by the campus, the event is not open to the public, but a limited number of journalists and reporters will be allowed.
The debate is set for 2 p.m. September 25th in Columbia at the Missouri Theatre and it will be televised live on KOMU 8.
The event is co-sponsored by the Missouri Press Association.
Missouri Press Association Executive Director Mark Maassen says “It originally would have been scheduled in Jeff City, that’s where our convention was going to be. But we had to cancel it due to COVID-19 concerns.”
A livestream will be available for all MPA members to use on their websites. The forum is being produced in cooperation with the Missouri School of Journalism.
No additional forums are confirmed at this time.
