Wendy vs Greg: Round Two

The final Texas gubernatorial debate between Wendy Davis and Greg Abbott is taking place later tonight in Dallas, and I’m hoping to see a lot more fireworks in this one. 

But since both candidates are playing not to make the game changing mistake that can swing the election, it’s probably going to be just as close to the vest as this one.

Frankly, I would have rather seen a couple of town hall ones in which both candidates have to take questions from the audience, and would have loved those town halls to have been in The Valley and on the TSU campus in Houston for starters..  

But for you political junkies, the debate starts at 8 PM.  I’ve been invited to a debate watch party later tonight with a group of Wendy Davis supporters gathering at Nikki Araguz Loyd’s house (yep, that Nikki).   KXAS-TV (NBC5), KXTX-TV (Telemundo 39), The Dallas Morning News, Texas Association of Broadcasters are the sponsors of it with the moderator for tonight’s political fun being KERA managing editor Shelley Kofler. 

The questions will come from panelists Brian Curtis, NBC5; Peggy Fikac, San Antonio Express-News/Houston Chronicle; Norma García, Telemundo 39; and Gromer Jeffers Jr., The Dallas Morning News.  

If you don’t live in the Lone Star State, the debate is being livestreamed, and it may end up being broadcast on C-SPAN like the first debate was.
