FitzGerald and Green Party gubernatorial nominee Anita Rios are scheduled to debate at the City Club of Cleveland on Wed., Oct 22, officials with both campaigns confirmed Wednesday.

FitzGerald campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said other debates and events will be announced Thursday, though she declined to provide details.
