The LSU Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs has partnered with Nexstar Media to host a 2019 Gubernatorial Debate on September 19, 2019. As a red state with the only Democratic incumbent running for reelection this cycle, all eyes will be focused on Louisiana to serve as a barometer for the 2020 presidential cycle. The debate will be held in the LSU Student Union Theatre and broadcast live across the state. It is also expected to be picked up by national media outlets. Doors will open at 5:30 PM and close at 6:30 PM. Guests must register with their legal name and present their ticket and photo ID to be allowed entrance. No signs or large printed campaign materials will be allowed inside the theatre. Parking will be available in the LSU Union Square parking garage.
