Pittsburgh's 3 mayoral candidates agree to debates

Pittsburgh's 3 mayoral candidates agree to debates: Three Democrats have agreed to appear in three televised debates before Pittsburgh's mayoral primary on May 19.

Incumbent Luke Ravenstahl and his challengers, City Councilman Patrick Dowd and attorney Carmen Robinson, will debate live on April 6 on PCNC, the cable news channel affiliated with WPXI-TV, the city's NBC affiliate.

KDKA-TV, the CBS affiliate, will air a taped debate April 15. And ABC affiliate WTAE-TV will broadcast a live, in-studio debate April 20.

All the debates will last an hour and air at 7 p.m.
Where is the P-G sponsored event? What about QED's event?

I think that the Jewish Foundation is also going to host an event, but it might be more of a candidate talk and less of a full-fledged debate.

Neighborhood groups, nonprofits, Sustainable Pittsburgh, -- time to step up!
