Candidate Debate To Be Held On Friday


By KMVT News

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) The race between Idaho State Representative Mike Simpson and his challenger Bryan Smith is heating up across the state.

Friday, the two candidates will be in Twin Falls to give the southern Idaho region a glimpse into their policies and personalities.

A debate between the two will take place at 6:30 inside the Canyon Ridge auditorium in Twin Falls on Friday.

Tickets for the event are unavailable, with 350 seats being grabbed up in a matter of days.

But thanks to the Times News and Neuhoff Communications, you still have an opportunity to view the debate and get a feel for the candidates in a live setting.

"Right now what people have seen from Mike Simpson and Bryan Smith side by side are their ads... and they've been pretty brutal this season, a lot of attack ads and that's really not a good way to make a decision. So this is a moment... it's an hour to sit back and look at the men side-by-side, see how they respond to each other, how they respond to questions, how thoughtful they are on the issues... who do you agree with, who would represent you," explains Autumn Phillips, Times News editor.

If you were not able to make it to the debate, you still have a chance to watch it.

KMVT and Fox 14 – KSVT - will air the debate on multiple times and dates.

Tune into KMVT on Saturday night at 7 p.m. and then again on Fox 14 at 9.

Then finally on Sunday on Fox 14 at 5.

The Times News will also have a feed of the debate on their website at

That will be posted Monday morning.
