Watch Candidate Debates on Prairie Public

Selecting the next leaders for our state isn’t something to take lightly. AARP North Dakota wants to help voters stay informed and know where the candidates stand on issues that matter most.

See Also: 3 Questions to Ask the Candidates

Once again, AARP North Dakota and Prairie Public Broadcasting are teaming up to provide comprehensive pre-election coverage of the candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot.

Candidate Debates

In October, Prairie Public will televise candidate debates between U.S. Senate candidates Rick Berg (R) and Heidi Heitkamp (D), and U.S. House candidates Kevin Cramer (R) and Pam Gulleson (D).

At the state level, Prairie Public will broadcast a gubernatorial debate between Jack Dalrymple (R) and Ryan Taylor (D).

Candidates for Public Service Commissioner – Randy Christmann (R) and Brad Crabtree (D) – will debate on Prairie Public’s statewide radio network.

Exact times for debate broadcasts had yet to be confirmed at the time this newsletter was written. For up-to-date debate broadcast schedules, visit Prairie Public’s program guide, or the AARP North Dakota webpage.

Question the Candidates

The next president and Congress could decide the future of Medicare and Social Security, yet too few candidates will tell you where they stand on the future of these vital programs.

Before you cast your vote on Nov. 6, make sure you know where candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate and presidency stand on these three issues:

  • How would you protect Social Security for today’s seniors and strengthen it for future generations?
  • How would you put Medicare on stronger financial ground and protect today’s seniors and future retirees from the burden of rising health costs?
  • How would you help Americans build a financial nest egg for their retirement?

AARP is nonpartisan – it does not support or oppose any political candidates or contribute any money to campaigns or political action groups. The Association does, however, want to inform voters on the issues that matter most to them and to let voters know where AARP stands.
And don’t forget to make your voice count by voting on Nov. 6.
