Twitter Spin Room: What are the candidates teams saying?
The candidates on the issues:
--- Heather Mizeur
--- Doug Gansler
Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather R. Mizeur will debate for the second time tonight in the Democratic campaign for governor. Unless plans abruptly change, the two candidates will be separated in the WBFF (Fox45) studio by a conspicuous lectern – directly in the middle of the makeshift stage – bearing the name of absent front-runner Anthony G. Brown.

FOX45/WBFF said it was giving Lt. Gov Anthony Brown until 6:00 tonight to change his mind and declare his intention to participate. But Brown's campaign reiterated its previous statements that the debate is outside of an agreement it says the three candidates signed off on.
