From the press release:
Moderated by Brian Mackey, host of The 21st, the debate will feature questions from a panel of local journalists—Mary Hansen (WUIS-NPR Illinois), Chris Coates (The Pantagraph, Herald & Review, and Journal Gazette/Times-Courier in Mattoon), and Mark Maxwell (WCIA)—as well as constituents of Illinois’ 13th Congressional District. Together, these questions will give people a chance to hear these two candidates discuss the issues affecting those throughout the district, which stretches from Champaign-Urbana west to the Mississippi River and to the Illinois suburbs of St. Louis.
Voters can submi questions ahead of time to illinoisnewsroom.org/election 2020. Questions will be reviewed and selected by the debate's editorial board.
