Parkersburg, W.Va. (AP) -- Republican David McKinley and democrat Michael Oliverio will participate in an October debate in their race for West Virginia's 1st Congressional District seat.

The Oct. 19 debate at the Smoot Theatre in Parkersburg is sponsored by AARP West Virginia.

AARP West Virginia senior state director Gaylene Miller says it's the first time in a decade that West Virginia voters will send a new Representative to the U.S. House.

Oliverio defeated longtime incumbent Rep. Alan Mollohan in the democratic primary in May.

He and McKinley say they look forward to the debate.
