** UPDATE: The debate has been rescheduled again, this time to Sept. 26.

The AARP and Vermont Public Television have postponed a gubernatorial debate scheduled for tomorrow night in South Burlington because the result of the Democratic primary isn't settled.

State Senator Peter Shumlin has declared victory, but state Senator Doug Racine, who trails Shumlin by 190 votes, isn't conceding until results become official in two to four days. A recount is still possible.

The debate would have been the first between the Democratic nominee and Republican candidate, Lt. Governor Brian Dubie. It's been rescheduled to Sept. 15 at 7:30 in the DoubleTree Hotel and Conference Center.

Sorry, independent and minor party candidates, you're still not invited.

From an AARP press release.

Due to uncertainty over the final primary election results and a definitive democratic candidate, the AARP Vermont Governor’s Forum has been postponed.  The new date is September 15 at the DoubleTree Hotel in South Burlington. Those who have already registered to attend will remain on our list and are welcome to attend on Sept. 15.

The open public forum will be moderated by Steve Delaney, formerly of Vermont Public Radio, and broadcast live by Vermont Public Television.  The forum is part of a statewide voter education campaign designed to inform voters on the issues and share candidates’ views on important matters affecting all Vermonters.
