(Hershey) -- Democratic Governor Tom Wolfand Republican challenger Scott Wagner are about to face off in what will be the fall race's only formal debate-style forum.

Wolf and Wagner are scheduled to take the stage tonight in Hershey at the event moderated by "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek.

Wagner wants more debates, but Wolf is leading in polls and fundraising and has agreed to take part in just one head-to-head encounter.

The governor is seeking a second term, while Wagner stepped down from representing a York County district in the state Senate to focus on his bid to unseat the governor.

The 45-minute event will take place at the annual Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry dinner in Hershey.
