Special Feature KPBS Election Coverage
Although 10 candidates are running for the 52nd Congressional seat, KPBS decided to limit the debaters to the three whose favorability ratings are above 10 percent. KPBS used a poll conducted by the independent national polling company SurveyUSA, commissioned by KPBS partner 10 News (KGTV Channel 10).
More details on the poll and the decision to limit the debate are available in this press release.
The debates are just one part of KPBS' election coverage. More information on all candidates is available here.
