The last gubernatorial debate, on Sept. 26, included independent candidate Richard Nelson "Oz" Griebel of Hartford -- giving the Democrat and Republican in the race less airtime and opportunities to bash each other.

Daily Voice coverage of the last three-way debate can be found by clicking here.

All three will square off again at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18 at the Infinity Music Hall & Bistro in Hartford for a debate sponsored by the Connecticut Broadcasters Association and moderated by Connecticut Public Radio's John Dankosky. It is being telecast live on WFSB Channel 3

Griebel is a former banker, lawyer, and was a Republican primary candidate in the 2010 gubernatorial election.

It also marks the second to last debate for the two major party candidates: Democrat Ned Lamont of Greenwich and Republican Bob Stefanowski of Madison.

The 60-minute debate will be broadcast live by WNPR. It can be viewed online by clicking here.

Griebel and Lamont participated in the first post-primary debate. Stefanowski skipped that one. Griebel was not included in two subsequent debates, which were covered by Daily Voice here as well as here.

The final gubernatorial debate is on Oct. 30.
