A U.S. Senate debate is coming to campus in late October. 

The Washington State Debate Coalition invited incumbent Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and her republican challenger, Susan Hutchinson, to discuss issues facing the state, ahead of November’s election. 

Cantwell was first elected to the Senate in 2000, defeating the state’s last republican senator, Slade Gordon. In 2012, she won re-election with 60 percent of the vote. She’s a ranking member of the Senate Energy Committee. 

Hutchinson is the former chair of Washington State Republican Party. Previously, she worked at KIRO-TV news in Seattle as an anchor for more than 20 years. 

A term in the U.S Senate lasts for six years.   

The debate is free and will be on Oct. 30 from 7-8 p.m. in the Hemmigson Center. To register for a ticket, visit https://www.evenbtrite.com/e/us-senate-debate-at-gonzaga-university-tickets-49659587162. 

The last Senate debate on campus was in 2016, when Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) was challenged by Chris Vance.
