Incumbent Republican Sen. Marty Golden and Democrat Andrew Gounardes, his challenger for the 22nd State Senate District, will debate at Saint Phillips Episcopal Church at 1072 80th Street in Dyker Heights at 8 p.m. tonight.
The debate is sponsored by the Dyker Heights Community Council.
Gounardes' campaign has been fairly relentless in attacking Golden on his voting history on housing issues, gun laws and Golden's cancelled ettiquette workshop for women that stirred up a bit of controversy.
Golden's campaign has steadily announced a number of endorsements, including from SEIU 1199 and the state's Public Employees Federation.
