Both candidates say they're excited for the opportunity.

"I'd like to make a case for that approach and to apply for the job," McMurray said. "I'm applying for the job."

"We want the citizens to know that there is a very big difference between who I am and my opponent," Walker said. "They'll see that. I think it's important for them to come out."

This will be the first of two formal debates agreed to by the two candidates.

The first debate is scheduled for Thursday night at 6 p.m. at Benton High School.
