The rest of the tickets will be distributed by the candidates’ campaigns.

“The University of Denver and 9NEWS have worked together on political debates in the past,” says Mark Yoder, executive producer at 9News. “Given this is Denver’s mayoral race, it only seemed natural to hold our first debate at DU.”
