RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — AARP Virginia and the League of Women Voters are calling on Republican gubernatorial candidate┬áKen Cuccinelli to debate Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic candidate, in “The People’s Debate.”

After already missing a July 1 deadline, organizers said Cuccinelli did not respond to a certified letter sent to his campaign, which gave the Republican until last Friday to decide if he will take part.

McAuliffe has already accepted the invitation.

WTVR and Public Television station WCVE are media sponsors of “The People’s Debate,” which is slated┬áto be broadcast across the Commonwealth on Oct. 14.
