The Frontier is partnering with NonDoc and News 9 to fact-check debates in the gubernatorial and Oklahoma County district attorney races ahead of the November election.

Gov. Kevin Stitt and Democratic challenger Joy Hofmeister have agreed to a debate hosted by NonDoc and News 9 at  5:30 p.m. Oct. 19 at the Will Rogers Theatre in Oklahoma City. Seating for the gubernatorial debate is limited and can only be reserved through NonDoc, the State Chamber of Oklahoma and the Stitt and Hofmeister campaigns.

Oklahoma County district attorney candidates Kevin Calvey and Vicki Behenna will debate at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 11, at The Auditorium at The Douglass, in Oklahoma City. The event is free and open to the public.

In keeping with its mission of accountability journalism, The Frontier will fact-check select candidates’ responses to debate questions. Over the past year, The Frontier has published a series of fact-checking articles for which our staff has used public records, interviews, and other reporting to examine the accuracy of statements from public officials on a variety of issues.

The Frontier will live-stream the debates on Facebook. The debates can also be viewed on and on the Facebook pages of NonDoc and other media partners. 

NonDoc’s Tres Savage and News 9’s Storme Jones will be the lead moderators of the debates.
