WATCH: Live Seattle mayoral debate

Jul 17, 2017

KING 5's Natalie Brand and KUOW's Ross Reynolds will co-moderate a debate between the six leading candidates in the race for Seattle mayor. This will be their only televised primary election debate.

Twenty-one people are running to succeed Ed Murray, who dropped out of the race, but we'll hear from the current leading candidates: Jenny Durkan, Jessyn Farrell, Bob Hasegawa, Michael McGinn, Cary Moon and Nikkita Oliver.

The debate will air live on KING 5, KONG and KUOW.

The candidates were invited to participate in the debate based on the following criteria: whether the person is a declared candidate, their current level of funds raised by the candidate, the endorsements the candidates have received, and the candidate's comparative standing in an exclusive KING 5/KUOW SurveyUSA Poll.

This debate is co-presented by KING 5 News and KUOW Public Radio and held at Impact Hub Seattle.
