Legislative candidates Republican Frank Antenori and Democrat David Bradley are scheduled to debate Wednesday night at The Shanty, 401 E. 9th St.

The two candidates for state Senate in Legislative District 10 (see attached map) are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. The district includes most of Tucson's east side and a strip of midtown bordered by Campbell Avenue on the western edge.

The Shanty is the meeting place for the weekly Drinking Liberally get-togethers as well as a site for candidate debates.

Antenori is encouraging a "Smoking Conservatively" contingent to come. His Web site says "The first 15 Republicans who show a voting card will receive their choice of a free drink or cigar!!"

Here are two stories the Star has run on the race. 

Antenori is a sort of incumbent in the race, in that he represents the old Legislative District 30 in the state Senate. But that district is disappearing, and the new, largely overlapping Legislative District 10 gives a slight voter-registration advantage to Democrats.

Bradley served in the House from 2003 to 2011, representing Legislative District 28, which covered much of midtown and also overlaps the new Legislative District 10.
