Cantor, Powell to debate Sept. 28

U.S. Representative Eric Cantor, a Republican, and his Democratic challenger in the 7th District House of Representatives race, Wayne Powell, will debate Sept. 28 in an event hosted by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, chamber officials announced today.

The debate will be held at an as-yet unnamed chamber-member business within the district.

“We are pleased to host this debate and provide a platform for both candidates to address the important issues facing our country and the Commonwealth,” said Barry DuVal, President and CEO of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. “It is important that the business community is aware of where the candidates stand on issues that impact the economy.”

The Virginia Chamber of Commerce is the state’s largest business advocacy organization with more than 13,000 member businesses.
