Before the debate, News 5 political correspondent John Kosich will be live on the News 5 Facebook page, discussed the issues the candidates are expected to debate about and answering any questions you have about the debate and upcoming elections.

Watch that discussion live below:

Whaley served two terms as mayor of Dayton from 2014 to 2022, and Cranley was mayor of Cincinnati from 2013 to 2022.

There will be no primary debate on the Republican side, as the incumbent governor, Republican Mike DeWine, declined to participate, and one of the two other candidates, former U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci, decided to follow suit.
