HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

It's shaping up to be a heated election year in Hawaii.

There are crowded races for lieutenant governor and for the congressional seat to be vacated by U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa.

And Hanabusa is challenging incumbent David Ige, who's seeking a second term as governor. 

To help you better understand the candidates, Hawaii News Now is excited to announce an upcoming Super Debate on July 2.

The evening kicks off at 6:30 p.m., with the lieutenant governor's debate beginning at 7 p.m.

The debate for 1st Congressional district follows at 8 p.m., and the gubernatorial debate rounds out the night, starting at 9 p.m.

After each debate, HNN will offer in-depth analysis from experts and reactions from audience members.

The Super Debate will take place at the Kapalama campus of Kamehameha Schools, a sponsor for the event along with the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.
