HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The Democratic and Republican nominees to be Pennsylvania’s next attorney general are set to face off in a debate, two weeks before Election Day.

Democratic Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro and Republican state Sen. John Rafferty are appearing at a one-hour forum Monday morning at Widener University Commonwealth Law School in Harrisburg.

Capitol reporters will question the candidates about their approach to serving as the state’s top prosecutor.

The winner will take over an office roiled by the arrest and conviction of Democratic Attorney General Kathleen Kane, who stepped down in August.

Kane is being sentenced in a suburban Philadelphia courtroom on Monday after being convicted this summer of leaking secret material to a newspaper and lying to a grand jury.
