The University of Virginia Center for Effective Lawmaking (CEL), College Republicans at UVA, and the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy co-hosted a debate among the candidates for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, March 27, 2018. The nominee will be chosen in a primary election on June 12 and the winner will face incumbent Democrat Tim Kaine and Libertarian challenger Matt Waters in the general election on November 6.

All known Republican candidates were invited to the event and those with ballot access confirmed by the Republican Party of Virginia prior to the debate were eligible to participate. Those three candidates were Delegate Nick Freitas, Bishop E.W. Jackson, and Prince William County Board Chairman Corey Stewart.
