The two top GOP candidates for governor will meet for their first debate in the Inland Empire just after New Year’s Day.
The world yawns.
Assemblyman Travis Allen and businessman John Cox will face off on Jan. 4 at a gathering of the Redlands Tea Party Patriots, said John Berry, a spokesman for the group.
The 90-minute debate will take place at the Mill Creek Cattle Company restaurant in Mentone and is open to the public.
Polling shows that they have little support from California voters. Allen was backed by 15% of voters who plan to cast ballots in the June primary, while Cox received the support of more than 11%, behind the top Democrats running for the seat, according to a recent USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll.
