CHICAGO (AP) - The two major party candidates running for Illinois comptroller will participate in one televised debate ahead of the November election.

WTTW in Chicago announced Tuesday that a candidate forum for Republican incumbent Leslie Munger and Democrat Susana Mendoza will be on Oct. 25.

Mendoza is the city clerk of Chicago. The other candidates are Libertarian Claire Ball of Addison and Green Party candidate Tim Curtin of Hillside.

The four candidates have appeared together before newspaper editorial boards.

Munger was appointed to the office last year after the death of Judy Baar Topinka.

The winner of the Nov. 8 election will finish out the four-year term.
