The public will have an opportunity to hear directly from the candidates for State Senate District 14 on Monday, October 14th at 7:00 p.m. at The Grand Theatre in downtown Cartersville during the WBHF Political Forum. Candidates will answer questions from staffs of WBHF radio AM 1450, The Daily Tribune News and The Cherokee Tribune

“The political forums are one of the most important community events that we do”, states WBHF Station Manager Matt Santini. “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with The Daily Tribune News and The Cherokee Tribune for this event.” “When local media outlets can have a healthy and respectful competition and can work together on events like this, the community wins.”  Six candidates have qualified for the Senate seat that has been vacated by Barry Loudermilk who resigned his position to run for the U.S. House seat vacated by Congressman Phil Gingrey.

In addition to the panelist’s questions, WBHF is soliciting questions from the public for consideration. Questions can be submitted via the station’s Facebook page or by email at

The public is encouraged to attend this free event at The Grand Theatre in downtown Cartersville, but the event will also be broadcast live on AM 1450 WBHF and replayed at multiple times before the November 5th special election.
