The bipartisan Open Debate Coalition announced on Tuesday that Republican Congressman David Jolly (FL­13) and Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson (FL­9) will participate in a first-­ever Open Debate for U.S. Senate.

The format is unique; Regular people submit and vote on questions in advance. Moderators must choose from the Top 30 vote­-getters.

The in-­person studio debate will take place in Orlando at 7:00 PM EDT on Monday, April 25. Question submission and voting is now open at FloridaOpenDebate.com and lasts through 12:00 PM EDT on Monday, April 25.

Debate moderators will include The Young Turks, the #1 news channel on YouTube with over 3 billion views and Independent Journal Review, which is the #1 news channel on Vine.

Other distribution channels are expected to be announced.

An “open video feed” will allow any website or TV station to broadcast top­ quality debate footage live or re­broadcast later without violating copyright. The coalition hopes this debate format will lead to millions of new debate viewers online this cycle, especially younger viewers.
