Loudoun Chamber Announces Congressional Debate

The Loudoun Chamber of Commerce has reached an agreement with Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA-10) and her challenger for the 10th Congressional District seat in November, State Sen. Jennifer T. Wexton (D-33) to stage a debate.

The debate will be held Friday, Sept. 21 at 8 a.m. at The National Conference Center in Lansdowne.

“On behalf of our partners, I want to thank Congresswoman Comstock and Senator Wexton for agreeing to join our region’s leading business organizations for this debate,” said Chamber President and CEO Tony Howard. “We look forward to hearing Congresswoman Comstock and State Senator Wexton share their thoughts on how they would improve the economic climate and quality of life for their constituents and for all Americans.”

The questions to the candidates will draw exclusively from the issues and proposed solutions in the Loudoun Chamber’s 2018 Public Policy Positions and will not be shared in advance. They will be asked by a panel of local business leaders.

The debate is to be held in partnership with the Dulles Regional, Greater McLean, Greater Reston, Northern Virginia, and Tysons Regional chambers of commerce, the Northern Virginia Technology Council and George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government.

Tickets can be purchased online at LoudounChamber.org. A breakfast buffet will be served prior to the debate.
