PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Two Republicans running for Rhode Island governor are set to debate in Providence.

Barrington businessman Ken Block and Cranston Mayor Allan Fung are scheduled to face off Tuesday night at the Providence Performing Arts Center. The debate will be televised live beginning at 7 p.m. on WPRI-TV, which is sponsoring the event with The Providence Journal.

The three Democrats running for governor — Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, state Treasurer Gina Raimondo and former Obama administration official Clay Pell — debated last week at the same location.

Democratic Gov. Lincoln Chafee is not seeking re-election.
