The first debate between Republican incumbent Governor Kim Reynolds and Democratic challenger Fred Hubbell will take place Wednesday night. 

Wednesday night’s debate is the first of three among these two candidates.

The latest polls show Reynolds 2 percentage points behind Hubbell — 41 to 43 percent. 
This, however, is within the poll’s 4.2 percent margin of error. 

Libertarian candidate Jake Porter is not a part of the debate and has planned to protest outside of tonight’s debate.
