MARIETTA — Ohio's major party governor candidates are ready to meet for another televised debate.
Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray, the former federal consumer watchdog, were feisty in their first debate in Dayton Sept. 19. They traded jabs, rapid-fire exchanges and one-liners.
Monday's faceoff at Marietta College in southern Ohio will be a town hall-style forum for the candidates to discuss their policy positions and differing visions for the state.
DeWine and Cordray are locked in a close race to succeed Republican Gov. John Kasich, who's term-limited. It's one of the most expensive and closely watched elections this fall.
Former President Barack Obama has campaigned in Cleveland for Cordray and Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, has visited Ohio to raise money for DeWine.
