Virginia GOP announces more details of Senate debates

The Republican Party of Virginia has released more details on the three upcoming Senate primary debates, including a twist: Virginians can submit their own questions via Facebook, beginning Monday.

The RPV had previously announced it would host three debates, and now we know the full GOP field in the contest to succeed retiring Sen. James Webb (D): former governor George Allen, Bishop Earl Jackson, Del. Robert Marshall (Prince William) and former Virginia Tea Party Patriots head Jamie Radtke. Allen is considered the favorite, and the winner will take on ex-governor Timothy M. Kaine (D).

The sessions will take place April 28 at the Sheraton Roanoke Hotel and Convention Center, May 11 at the Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach, and May 25 at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church.

Beginning May 14, people will be able to go to the RPV Web site to vote on specific questions from Facebook to be asked at the debate
