Spectrum News and NY1 will host a debate between attorney general candidates Letitia James and Keith Wofford on Oct. 30.

The debate, to be moderated by Capital Tonight’s Liz Benjamin and Inside City Hall’s Errol Louis, airs at 7 p.m.

James, the New York City public advocate, was the winner of a four-way Democratic primary last month. Wofford, an attorney at the law firm Ropes & Gray, was unopposed for the GOP nomination.

The attorney general’s office is an open seat this year following the resignation in May of Democratic incumbent Eric Schneiderman amid allegations of domestic violence and sexual misconduct.

Barbara Underwood, appointed by the Legislature to serve out the remainder of Schneiderman’s second term, declined to run.
