The Democrats will meet two times this primary season in official televised debates. The Republicans have a separate pair of debates, according to NYC Campaign Finance Board.
The Democrats will debate on Aug. 21 and Sept. 3, @ 7PM and the Republicans on Aug. 28 @7PM and Sept. 8 a@ 11:30AM.
These face-offs will also be broadcast on the radio, online and in Spanish.
The official debates, before the Sept. 10 primary, provide citywide exposure for the candidates. If no single candidate earns 40 percent of the primary vote, then the first- and second-place winners will meet in a runoff. The official Democratic mayoral runoff debate is set for Sept. 17.
The general election mayoral debates are Oct. 22 and Oct. 29. All three are at 7 p.m.
