Frederick Community College (FCC) Democrats and Republicans will be hosting a debate between 6th district Republican Congressman Roscoe Bartlett and Democratic candidate Jennifer Dougherty.

It will take place in the JBK Theater at FCC on Wednesday, October 8th from 7:30 to 9:00 PM ET with the actual debate beginning at 8:00 PM. FCC is located at 7922 Opossumtown Pike in Frederick, Maryland.

For those of you who are unable to attend, it will also be televised on Frederick County Maryland Comcast Cable Channel 23 using FCC video production students. Plans are to also rebroadcast the debate at various times prior to the election. We will provide you with the dates and times as they become available.

The College Democrats and Republicans will be playing important roles in the sixty minute debate which will be moderated by FCC Faculty member, Ken Kerr. Mr. Kerr is also a columnist on Air-it-Out with George and his column appears every Monday.

The debate will feature video taped questions from 6th district residents. On Thursday, September 25, FCC Video personnel will be at Frederick County Democratic Headquarters located on the corner of N.Market Street and Fourth Street in Frederick, Maryland to tape questions from Democratic voters between the hours of 7:00 - 9:00 PM. We will provide you with the location and time for the questions from Republican voters to be videotaped when it is provided to us.
9-23-2008 Update 5:40 PM ET - Questions will also be taped Friday, September 26 at the FCC Conference Center from 8:30 - 10:30 PM during a "Debate watch Party" which is open to the public. Friday night will be the first of three presidential debates to be held before election day.

The FCC College Democrats and College Republicans will then select the videotaped questions for use in the debate. Those wishing to submit a video question should keep their questions to 20 seconds or less. This will allow more time for candidate responses and more questions.

We will also provide live blogging of the debate here on Air-it-Out with George and provide you with the opportunity to comment on the debate as you watch it.
