SAN FRANCISCO - The first, and only, live debate between candidates on the Green Party's California ballot for President of the United States - featuring a former Democratic Party member of Congress, consumer protection icon, professor and environmental engineer - is scheduled here January 13, said John Morton of the Green Presidential Debate Committee.

The debate will be held Sunday, January 13 at 2 p.m. at the Herbst Theater/Veterans Memorial Building, 401 Van Ness Avenue.

Six-time Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney, longtime consumer advocate Ralph Nader - who is still an undeclared candidate, university professor Jared Ball and environmental engineer Kent Mesplay will participate in 'Campaign 2008: A Presidential Debate that Matters.'
