The debate will be livestreamed from the college’s Gene and Marlene Epstein Campus at Lower Bucks in Bristol Township. Because of health and safety concerns amid the global pandemic, no audience members will be allowed.
The public is invited to watch live online through websites for the Pennsylvania Cable Network (, the Bucks County Courier Times (, and WBCB-1490 AM. (
