Republican nominee Joe Lhota (left) and Democratic nominee Bill de Blasio face off in one of the 2013 general election debates.

The city’s Campaign Finance Board on Thursday unveiled the full lineup of primary and general election debates for the three citywide offices.

The schedule includes Republican and Democratic debates for mayor but only Democratic showcases for the other two posts, comptroller and public advocate, because of the lack of Republican competition for those nominations.

In both the primary and general election season, for each office and where necessary both parties, there is both an all-hands debate and a “leading contenders” invitational where a place at a podium is determined by polling and other measures.

If you simply cannot wait until August for some debate action, the CFB has video of local debates going back to 1997 on its website.
