Delegate Jay Jones (D-Norfolk)
The People’s Debates took place Tuesday night for the Democratic Attorney General candidates in Virginia. Only Del. Jay Jones participated Monday as his primary opponent, the current Attorney General Mark Herring, did not agree to attend the event.
This debate is the first in a series for statewide races with the lieutenant governor and gubernatorial candidates having their own night in the future. The LG debate will take place March 11 at 7 pm and the gubernatorial debate will take place March 16 at 7 pm.
Jesse Frierson of the Cannabis Equity Coalition of Virginia and Luisa Boyarski of the Virginia Grassroots Coalition were the moderators.
