MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont candidates vying for their parties’ gubernatorial nominations are set to face one another in televised debates a week before the state’s Aug. 9 primary. The debates are being televised on Vermont PBS.

Republicans Bruce Lisman and Phil Scott debate Monday evening, while Democrats Matt Dune, Cris Ericson, Peter Galbraith, Sue Minter and H. Brooke Paige are slated to face off on Tuesday night.

Both debates are set for 8 p.m.

Winners of the primary will advance to the general election in November, where they’ll vie to replace Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin, who is stepping down after three two-year terms.
