Debate Tonight at 8PM

9 Oct

Tonight will be the first of two debates for U.S. Senate in Texas.  Rookie Senator John Cornyn will be debating State Representative Rick Noriega in Houston.  The race has been tightening up and has been called a “sleeper race” this year.  Given that a huge percentage of voters know nothing about either candidate, I’d recommend y’all watch.  One of the big topics tonight will be the bailout which Cornyn voted for and Noriega opposed, along with most Texas Congressmen.

Watch at 8PM on PBS or listen on NPR stations.
