This week on "Tweet the Press," NBC4 Northern Virginia Bureau chief Julie Carey joined to preview Wednesday night's Virginia Senate debate between Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine and Republican Corey Stewart, the chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors.

Carey will be one of the three members of the panel questioning Kaine and Stewart at Wednesday night's debate, NBC News political director and "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd.
