Candidates in the Texas Republican primary for the U.S. Senate will debate formally in Austin for the first time tonight at 7pm. Kay Bailey Hutchison announced one year ago that she would not seek a fourth term.

Tonight marks the first appearance in a general debate by front runner, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. ESPN college football analyst Craig James, who announced his bid for the seat last month, will also make his debate debut.

Former state solicitor general, Ted Cruz, is considered by many pundits to be the lead challenger to Dewhurst. Former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, and Magnolia, Texas businessman, Glenn Addison round out the field. 

KUT's Andy Uhler will have a full report in the morning, but if you'd like to stream the debate in real-time, click on the player below.
