Texas will have a new Senator next year now that Kay Bailey Hutchinson will be retiring. This race, along with many other races, has probably been overshadowed by the Presidential race. Some people might not even care to vote in the Texas Republican Presidential Primary Election on May 29th, 2012 because they do not feel that is matters now that Texas will have no say in the Presidential race.
It IS important to go vote still! We might not have a say in the Presidential Race, AGAIN, but there are MANY important races for Congress and Senate and local races. We have to still get out and vote!
The Texas US Senate battle has been on for several months now and it is very likely that no candidate will win over 50% on May 29th which means the top 2 will go to a runoff election.
This is a very competitive race and many people might not know who everyone is and what they stand for.
Tonight you will get a chance to see the top 4 Candidates on the same stage in a televised debate. The candidates at the debate tonight are Ted Cruz, Craig James, David Dewhurst, and Tom Leppert.
There has been only one other big debate with the top candidates back in January but that was not a televised debate. It was an online debate sponsored by Texas Public Policy Foundation and Empower Texans. It was a great debate.
This televised debate will help bring even much more needed attention to this race and to the candidates.
Watch the Debate TONIGHT 7pm
The debate will be televised live on various markets and online here. You can watch the debate tonight at 7:00 PM CT on WFAA in D/FW, KVUE in Austin, KHOU in Houston, KENS in San Antonio, or online. If you tweet, be sure to join us online by using the hash tags #TXSen, #BeloDebate
