Mr. Sarvis and Mr. Cuccinelli both trail Mr. McAuliffe badly in the money race. Mr. McAuliffe, once dubbed the greatest fundraiser in the history of the universe by former Vice President Al Gore, has raised more than $26 million.

Mr. Cuccinelli, meanwhile, has brought in nearly $17 million, and Mr. Sarvis has taken in less than $100,000, according to the most recent information provided by the non-partisan Virginia Public Access Project.

The one-hour debate is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Haymarket Theatre at the Squires Student Center at Virginia Tech and is co-sponsored by WDBJ-TV.
