The two major party candidates vying to be Maryland's next lieutenant governor will meet for their only broadcast debate Thursday when they appear on WAMU-FM in Washington.
Democrat Ken Ulman, running with Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, will go head-to-head with Republican Boyd Rutherford, Larry Hogan's choice for lieutenant governor, at 1 p.m. on the Kojo Nnamdi Show.
In addition to broadcasting the hour-long debate at 88.5 on the FM dial, WAMU will live-stream the video of the debate on its web site.
The two gubernatorial contenders have already met for two televised debates and are scheduled to hold their third and last televised encounter Saturday afternoon at the Maryland Public Television studios. A taped version will be broadcast at 7 p.m. on MPT and WBAL.

Ulman is the two-term Howard County executive, while Rutherford is a former Cabinet secretary in the administration of former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.
