Over the next six months, representatives from media organizations, civic groups, and academia -- including WKSU -- will be putting together a commission to manage political debates in Ohio.

Dan Moulthrop is CEO of the City Club of Cleveland, which convened the group’s first meeting last week. He says some candidates are not always confident that debates will be fair, while some incumbents view them as a “no-win” proposition.
