AUSTIN (KXAN) — Central Texans can watch the governor candidate debate between Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and Beto O’Rourke (D) in Spanish Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. on the CW Austin and on kxan.com.
This is the only scheduled debate between the candidates ahead of election day. They’ll meet this Friday at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in Edinburg. The debate will last an hour.
Britt Moreno of KXAN will host the debate, and journalists like Sally Hernandez from KXAN, Gromer Jeffers of The Dallas Morning News and Steve Spriester of KSAT-TV will also ask the candidates questions.
”With a little over 20% of the Austin/Round Rock/San Marcos MSA population speaking Spanish at
home, we felt it was a good idea to produce a Spanish version of this important event,” said Eric
Lassberg, Vice President and General Manager of KXAN.
