Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman and Del. Steve Schuh will meet in their first debate in the county executive's race on Monday night.

The Republicans will face off at 8 p.m. at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase St. in Annapolis. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m.

Neuman was appointed county executive in February 2013 to replace John R. Leopold, who resigned following his conviction of misconduct in office.

Schuh, who has served two terms in the House of Delegates, also sought the appointment. He has officially been running for county executive for a year.

The winner of the Republican primary between Schuh and Neuman will face the Democratic nominee, former sheriff George F. Johnson IV, in the general election.

The debate is sponsored by Capital Gazette Communications and will be moderated by editor Steve Gunn.
