Orange-Osceola state attorney candidates Lawson Lamar and Jeff Ashton will participate in a debate Tuesday, July 24, at the University of Central Florida.

The 7 p.m. debate will be broadcast live on Central Florida News 13 and will be moderated by News 13 anchor Ybeth Bruzual and Ross Wolf, an associate professor and graduate program coordinator with UCF’s Department of Criminal Justice.

Many of the questions that the candidates will answer were submitted by students and faculty members in UCF’s Department of Criminal Justice.

Tickets required for admission to the debate have been distributed.

Lamar and Ashton will compete in the primary election Aug. 14. Although both candidates are Democrats, the primary will be open to all Orange and Osceola county voters because there are no other candidates in the race.
