JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Candidates who are hoping to lead Ward 1 will face off Tuesday night. The Hinds County Republican party announced they plan to incorporate a new "chess-clock format" for this debate.

The four Republican candidates: Charles Barbour, Ashby Foote, Richard Sellers, and Amile Wilson have all confirmed that they will attend.

The chess clock format is similar to the Lincoln-Douglas debate. That means less intrusion from the moderator, more flexible time limits, and allowing cross examination between candidates.

The debate will be held at Bellwether Church, Tuesday night at 6:00 p.m. The special election is December 2nd.
