KPEL to Host Only Scheduled Debate Between Congressmen Charles Boustany and Jeff Landry

The stage is set and the two men have agreed to debate. Congressman Charles Boustany and Congressman Jeff Landry will come together to debate the issues on the Afternoon Drive Home with Jeremy Lawrence on Wednesday, October 31st at 5 pm.

The two candidates have not debated each other yet this year. A debate hosted by The Daily Advertiser and the UL, originally scheduled for Oct. 15, was canceled. Others who have attempted to schedule debates have not been able to pin down both candidates at once.

Both are vying for Louisiana’s 3rd District Congressional seat. The two were thrown into the election because of redistricting that occurred last year, when the 7th District, which Boustany currently represents, and the 3rd, which Landry represents, were combined.

Jeremy Lawrence will moderate the debate between Congressman Landry and Congressman Boustany. But, we’d like to have input from you, the listeners to this station and voters in the coming election.

Please let us know what you would like to ask these two men. Questions will be strictly on the issues that face South Louisiana and the nation.
