Ross, Hutchinson agree to televised debate

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - A week after securing their parties' nominations for Arkansas' top office, Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mike Ross and Republican Asa Hutchinson have agreed to a statewide televised debate.

Little Rock television station KATV announced Tuesday that Ross and Hutchinson agreed to participate in an hour-long debate on Oct. 7. The debate will be held at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and will air live statewide on KATV, in conjunction with KHBS/KHOG and KAIT. It will also be live-streamed on station websites.

Hutchinson and Ross are ex-congressmen who easily won their parties' nominations in last week's primary.
