Gansler Mizeur Brown debate

Three televised debates next week for the gubernatorial candidates of both major parties along with a radio debate kick off the final three weeks of the primary election campaign.

Voters are paying more attention to a June 24 primary that is taking many by surprise, and the volume of advertising is set to ratchet up, with mailers filling mailboxes. Please send us photos of or links to any ads or mailers you think newsworthy.
