The two major-party candidates for Kansas
governor have agreed to take part in a televised debate next week.
Republican U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback and Democratic state Sen. Tom
Holland said Tuesday they will debate Oct. 7 on KWCH-TV in Wichita.
The event will also be carried on the station's regional
affiliates in Dodge City, Goodland, Hays and Salina.
Brownback and Holland have debated just once so far, on Sept. 11
at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson. Their campaigns have been
negotiating schedules to coordinate additional debates before the
Nov. 2 election.
