(Harrisburg) -- Voters will have a chance to size up the candidates vying for state attorney general as they square off in their first and only televised debate, just over two weeks before Election Day.

Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed and former Lackawanna County prosecutor Kathleen Kane are set to answer questions posed by a panel of reporters this evening at Widener Law School in Harrisburg.

Freed, a Republican, was unopposed in the primary. Kane beat a former congressman to earn a spot on the ballot.

Kane has sought to make an issue of the pace of the investigation into former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky during the tenure of now-Gov. Tom Corbett. Freed has not ruled out a review of the case.

The debate will be broadcast on PCN starting at 7:00 p.m. and webcast on the Widener Law School website.
