Qualls, Cranley square off in debate today

The first of two debates between Cincinnati mayoral candidates John Cranley and Roxanne Qualls takes place early this afternoon at the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal.

After an 11:30 a.m. luncheon, Qualls and Cranley will debate for an hour, with the focus on "issues of importance to the business community,'' according to Lance Barry, spokesman for the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, which is sponsoring the event.

The audience of about 100 will be primarily made up of Cincinnati business leaders.

WVXU will be live tweeting from the event, along with a story later on wvxu.org; and coverage on 91.7 WVXU.

The second debate will be on Oct. 15 at the School for Creative and Performing Arts, with live coverage by WCPO, channel 9.
