Many Arizona voters say education is their No. 1 issue in the November election.

At 8:30 a.m. Friday morning, 12 News’ “Sunday Square Off” live streamed a debate between the two people vying to be Arizona's top education official - superintendent of public instruction: Democrat Kathy Hoffman and Republican Frank Riggs.

Hoffman, a special education teacher for five years, defeated longtime officeholder David Schapira in the Democratic primary. This is her first run for office.

Riggs, a former California congressman, won the five-candidate Republican primary by 249 votes. Incumbent Superintendent Diane Douglas finished third.

The full broadcast version of this debate will air at 8 a.m. Sunday on 12 News, after NBC’s “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd. You can also watch the debate on our Facebook page.
