Five candidates are vying to be the next Massachusetts lieutenant governor in a contest that was left wide open after Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito declined to seek re-election.

The race has attracted three Democrats: Kim Driscoll, mayor of Salem, state Rep. Tami Gouveia and state Sen. Eric Lesser; and two Republicans, former state Rep. Kate Campanale and former state Rep. Leah Cole Allen.

Join WBUR, The Boston Globe and WCVB for the second lieutenant governor primary debate with the three Democratic candidates, moderated by WBUR reporter Steve Brown, WCVB reporter Sharman Sacchetti and Boston Globe reporter Taylor Dolven.

We’ll host a debate with the Republican candidates the previous day, August 15.
