GAINESVILLE -- Brenau University's radio station, 89.1 WBCX-FM, will broadcast live tonight's debate involving the Republican candidates running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss.<br />
If you are outside of the station's 1,900-square-mile listening area in northeast Georgia, you can listen to the streaming broadcast online at the WBCX Listen Live link: http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/wbcx/ppr/index.shtml. <br />
This is the third of seven debates that the Republican Party of Georgia scheduled around the state leading up to the May primary. The winner will face the Democratic nominee in the November election. Eight candidates are in the race, including three sitting members of the U.S. House of Representatives. <br />
Although the actual debate program will run from 6 to 8 p.m., WBCX coverage begins at 5:30 p.m. when WBCX station manager Jay Andrews interviews "Brenau's congressman," U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., northeast Georgia's 9th Congressional District representative. Collins is not in the Senate race, but he is up for re-election to his own seat.<br />
"You do not have to probe too deeply into the volumes of international news and punditry to understand the significance of this election," said Ed Schrader, the president of the private, non-sectarian non-aligned Brenau. "It is our duty as a university to provide forums for ideas, and to engage our community in discussion about the future of our country's politics and government."<br />
