The Lamoille County Republican Party is hosting a livestreamed debate tonight, Aug. 6, among the five GOP candidates running for lieutenant governor.

The debate will be moderated by Rob Roper, president of the Ethan Allen Institute, and Tommy Gardner, news editor for the Stowe Reporter and News & Citizen.

The debate will be streamed on the VTGOP Facebook page. It runs from 7-9 p.m.

Scheduled to participate are Republicans Dana Colson of Sharon, Meg Hansen of Manchester, Jim Hogue of Calais, Scott Milne of Pomfret and Dwayne Tucker of Barre Town.

Speaking ahead of the lieutenant governor debate are the Republicans running for local offices, none of whom face a challenge in next Tuesday’s primary election.
