RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- It's not a debate, but at least the two candidates for governor will be separately addressing the same crowd at a Richmond luncheon.
Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli will speak on the issues of political and governmental transparency to hundreds of people attending the Virginia Public Access Project's annual fundraising event on Thursday.
Issues of transparency have dogged each candidate, from McAuliffe's refusal to match Cuccinelli's release of his income taxes to Cuccinelli's waiting for years to disclose thousands of dollars in gifts from a corporate benefactor.
Each candidate will have seven to 10 minutes to speak. The order will be determined by a coin toss.
Debate dates and venues are still incomplete. The first is in late July before the Virginia Bar Association's summer conference.
