Watch Live: Final Ohio Governor Debate

Oct 8, 2018

The third and final debate between the major party candidates for governor gets underway Monday night in Cleveland. And it’s perfect timing – since voter registration closes Tuesday.

Watch the debate live on WOSU TV at 7 p.m. You can also stream the debate below, courtesy of ideastream.

This race is close, and that may be why Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray have had some tense moments in their previous two debates – like in the first debate, when DeWine said on Cordray's political career, "You’ve been a failure in every job you’ve ever had.”

Later in the debate, after DeWine spoke against legalizing marijuana, Cordray countered by saying, “You have been living in the past, and you’re still living in the past.”

This event on the campus of Cleveland State University in front of an audience of 150 will be a timed roundtable debate, with questions from three journalists, some coming from submissions to the website of the new Ohio Debate Commission.

The event won’t be open to the public, but it will air across the state live – two days before early voting starts.
