Please join the Upstate Chamber Coalition, along with Furman University and WYFF, for a series of debates featuring candidates for Governor. These debates will be broadcast live by WYFF and across the state by other news outlets. The candidates will answer a series of policy questions posed by moderators from WYFF. The Democratic debate will be held on April 22nd and the Republican debate will be held on May 29th.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from the candidates that are vying to lead our state. These debates will allow you to get to the know the candidates before heading to vote in the primaries on June 12th.
