Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ben Salango says he has accepted offers to participate in five debates against Gov. Jim Justice. However, Justice's campaign has indicated that the Republican incumbent will take part in only one debate that has already been scheduled.
The one confirmed debate will be hosted by the West Virginia Broadcasters’ Association on Oct. 13. In a virtual news conference Friday, Salango challenged Justice to accept offers for the other debates.
