Both candidates for governor will appear face to face at a forum in our area Friday.

The Farm Bureau's Young Farmers Committee is hosting the event at Wytheville Community College.

Republican candidate Ken Cuccinelli and Democrat Terry McAuliffe will discuss farm and forestry issues.

Those are Virginia's largest industries.

They'll also answer written questions from the audience.

The forum runs from 1:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.
