RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--Republican Gov. Pat McCrory and Democratic challenger Attorney General Roy Cooper are holding a statewide televised debate that will be overshadowed in some parts of North Carolina by Hurricane Matthew's aftermath.

The two candidates are participating in Tuesday evening's debate at the University of North Carolina Television studios in Research Triangle Park, hosted by Chuck Todd of NBC News.

You can watch the debate on WFMY News 2's digital channel 2-3 or 1256 on Time Warner Cable. We will also stream it on our Facebook Page and website.

Time: 7pm-8pm

The hour-long debate comes as the state continues to recover from the storm and anticipates more river flooding. Many eastern North Carolina voters will still lack electricity to watch it.

Cooper and McCrory debated in June at the North Carolina Bar Association convention in Charlotte.
