NewCanaanite.com and the New Canaan Advertiser are supporting the RTC debates.

The debates will be broadcast by NCTV Channel 79, according to the RTC.

At the Tuesday, July 18 caucus, New Canaan Republicans will select the candidates who will appear on the November ballot on the party line. The Republican caucus will start at 5 p.m. July 18, and will be held in the auditorium at the New Canaan High School.

In addition to the two debates, members of the public can get to know the candidates at a July 10 “Meet and Greet” in the Wagner Room at New Canaan High School, according to the RTC. There, residents are invited to talk individually with Republican candidates seeking endorsement at the caucus.
