State Senator Patrick Colbeck will debate the Democrats running for Governor next week in Detroit.
Colbeck will face off March 3rd against Shri Thanedar, Gretchen Whitmer, Bill Cobbs, and Abdul El Sayed.
At this time, there is no word whether fellow Republican Gubernatorial candidates Attorney General Schuette or Lt. Governor Brian Calley will be in attendance with Colbeck.
The event is called "The People's Governor Forum" and takes place at Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, 2080 W. Grand Blvd in the D, starting at 1 and slated to run until 3.
"Our campaign will continue to engage voters every chance we get," Colbeck said in a Facebook statement.
"Voters are inspired by what we’re going to accomplish with principled conservative leadership in Lansing. It’s important for citizens to know what they’re voting for when they enter the voting booth on election day. With every chance we get to appear next to our opponents, the difference between our campaign of bold colors and the others of more politics-as-usual becomes clear. After participating in several other town halls around the state with most of our Republican opponents over the past month, our campaign is excited for the chance to talk about our vision for Michigan in the Detroit forum."
