Wendy Davis And Greg Abbott Agree To Governor's Debate At KERA

Sep 3, 2014

Two candidates for Texas governor, Democrat Wendy Davis and Republican Greg Abbott, have accepted KERA’s invitation to a live, televised debate at 8 p.m. on Sept. 30.

Davis agreed to the debate today; Abbott accepted the invitation Friday after negotiations for a separate debate on that date with WFAA-TV broke down.

KERA will make the hourlong broadcast, The Texas Debates: The Race for Governor, available to all radio and television stations across the state. It will also be streamed online and simulcast in Spanish.

The debate, with a panel of journalists posing questions in the KERA studios, is a co-production with The Dallas Morning News, NBC 5/KXAS-TV, Telemundo 39/KXTX-TV and other media partners.
