Belmont University’s Troutt Theater served as the site for the final 2018 Tennessee Gubernatorial Debate between Democrat Karl Dean and Republican Bill Lee. The televised event was the final of three debates broadcast on Nexstar Media Group affiliates across the state.
For both candidates, the final debate served as a bit of a homecoming of sorts, as Lee serves on Belmont University’s Board of Trustees while Dean has taught political science at Belmont. Both candidates last appeared together on campus in January as participants in a SCORE forum on education.
The 2018 Tennessee gubernatorial election will take place on November 6.
