Tysons Corner, Va. – The Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce (Fairfax Chamber) and NBC4 Washington are pleased to announce that they will host a political debate between candidates for Virginia Governor, moderated by veteran political journalist Chuck Todd, political director and chief White House correspondent for NBC News and host of MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown.” The debate between Republican candidate Ken Cuccinelli and Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe will focus on the economy and other critical issues facing businesses in Northern Virginia, and will be aired live in prime time from 7:00-8:00 p.m. on NBC4 and NBC affiliates in Richmond, Charlottesville, Bristol and other cities throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

“For the 25th year in a row, we’re pleased to host Northern Virginia’s political debate,” said Fairfax Chamber President & CEO Jim Corcoran. “If the 2009 Virginia Governor’s race is any indication, history has shown us that to fare well in Northern Virginia a candidate must do well in this debate. We’re eager to hear from the candidates in this nationally watched race about their stances on the issues most critical to business.”

“It is extremely important for Virginia voters to hear directly from the candidates,” said Jackie Bradford, President and General Manager of NBC4.  “I am happy that, through our relationship with the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, NBC4 can provide that platform in this important election cycle.”
