Cruz, Dewhurst Set to Spar Again
Two debates weren’t enough.
The Texas Tribune reports that the two candidates in the Republican runoff election for U.S. Senate – Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst and former Solicitor General Ted Cruz – have agreed to a third debate. It's scheduled for Monday, July 23, the first day of early voting in the runoff:
The King Street Patriots, a Houston-area Tea Party group, and Fox 26, a Houston-based affiliate, are scheduled to host a televised debate in front of a live audience Monday at 6 p.m. Details on airings statewide weren't immediately clear. Both campaigns confirmed they would participate in Monday's event.
Election day in Democratic & Republican primary runoffs is July 31.
