HELENA – The Greater Montana Foundation will sponsor debates between Republican primary candidates for the U.S. Senate on April 26, and Democratic candidates for the US House on May 3, at the Ed Craney Studio of the Montana Museum of the Montana Historical Society.

Both debates will run from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. MTN News will be providing a live stream of the Thursday debate.

“The Debates will be live streamed and available for immediate viewing by any radio or TV station or for rebroadcast,” said Bill Whitsitt, vice chairman of the Greater Montana Foundation. “All the primary candidates have accepted our invitation and will participate. We have had good response from TV and radio outlets, some of whom will broadcast live, and others at a later date. Please check your local listings.”

Whitsitt, a former MTN news director, will open the debates and introduce participants. GMF Vice Chair Ron Davis, Butte, will serve as moderator.  Asking questions will be Mike Dennison, chief political reporter for MTN and Beth Saboe, news and public affairs producer at MontanaPBS in Bozeman.
