Posted By on Tue, May 10, 2016 at 10:31 AM

If you're interested in a debate that doesn't have a reference to a candidate's anatomy, you're in for a treat. The Young Democrats of Orange County are hosting a debate Tuesday night with six Democratic candidates for Florida Senate Districts 11 and 13, according to a press release. 

The event, held at the Dr. J.B. Callahan Neighborhood Community Center, is free to the public and starts at 6 p.m. For state Senate District 11, Florida Rep. Randolph Bracy, Chuck O'Neal, Bob Sindler and Gary Siplin will debate, while in District 13, candidates Judge "Rick" Roach and Florida Rep. Linda Stewart will debate each other. 

The debate promises to discuss criminal justice reform, police accountability, education, jobs, health care and environmental justice, the release says.  

The Orlando Political Observer reports the debate will be moderated by Earnest DeLoach, former president of the Tiger Bay Club of Central Florida, and Laila Abdelaziz, director of legislative and government affairs for the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Florida.
