Election 2012 Debate From The KC Library

Oct 29, 2012

In the waning days of the 2012 political campaign, KCUR and the Kansas City Public Library will join forces to present a discussion of the most important election issues.

Tuesday's Up to Date will broadcast live from the Plaza branch with local political consultants Roy Temple (Democrat) and Jeff Roe (Republican), who will explain why they believe their candidates and parties offer the best choice for the nation and the Kansas City area.

Steve Kraske will moderate a Q & A about the presidential contest, the U.S. Senate race in Missouri between incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill and Rep. Todd Akin, and more.

To attend the event, RSVP to the library here. Up to Date will broadcast on Tuesday at 11 a.m. from the Plaza branch of the Kansas City Public Library, 4801 Main St.
