Tickets sold out for 1st Congressional District debate between former Gov. Mark Sanford, Elizabeth Colbert Busch
There are no more tickets left to Monday’s debate between the two leading 1st Congressional Districts, but several sources will carry the event live online.
The 75-minute debate —the only scheduled debate before the May 7 special election — will be streamed live at scetv.org and Charleston.Patch.org.
WCBD Channel 2, whose anchor Brendan Clark will be one of the moderators, also will stream the debate online at countontwo.com but will not air it.
Republican Mark Sanford and Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch both agreed to meet at 7 p.m. at The Citadel’s Holliday Alumni Center.
The center holds a few hundred people, but Patch, the online news group that’s cosponsoring the event along with S.C. Radio Network, announced today that tickets are no longer available.
The relatively few debates in this abbreviated campaign has emerged as a major sticking point.
Sanford has repeatedly accused Colbert Busch of dodging him and running “a stealth campaign,” while her campaign has said she is running an aggressive race on her own terms.
