Three of the candidates for Governor of Texas will face off this evening in a debate sponsored by the Austin American-Statesman; The Dallas Morning News; the Fort Worth Star-Telegram; The Houston Chronicle; The San Antonio Express-News; KLRU-TV, Austin PBS; and KUT-FM, Public Radio for Central Texas.
For the few people (and fewer undecideds) that will be tuning in tonight as a result of Rick Perry's continued stonewalling of any debates, we're posting where and when you can watch the debate. Due to Perry's absence, most non-public TV stations will not carry the debate out of concern for 'equal time' provisions.
The debate begins at 7PM Central Time tonight and will feature Democrat Bill White, Libertarian Kathie Glass, and Green Party nominee Deb Shafto. The debate will be held in the KLRU-TV Studios in Austin, 2504-B Whitis (The University of Texas Campus, Communications Building B), 6th Floor.
The debate will be broadcast live or on a delayed basis on many PBS stations and will be streamed live by many of the participating media outlets, including:
