LANSING, MI – Attorney general candidates Bill Schuette and David Leyton are meeting for their first debate.

Schuette is a Republican former congressman, state senator and Court of Appeals judge. Leyton is the Democratic prosecutor of Genesee County.

The hourlong debate will be taped Friday morning at WKAR television studios in East Lansing. It will air during the weekend on public television stations statewide.

Tim Skubick, host of public television's "Off the Record" program, will be the moderator.

Schuette and Leyton are running to replace Republican Attorney General Mike Cox, who can't run again because of term limits.

Others running for attorney general are U.S. Taxpayers Party candidate Gerald T. Van Sickle of Wellston and Libertarian candidate Daniel W. Grow.
