CNN announces Florida Senate and Gubernatorial debates with St. Pete Times and USF on Oct. 24 and 25



cnnlivefromlogo.jpgThese are debates which have been talked about before in this space and elsewhere. But CNN put out a press release today, so I thought I'd post here to reinforce the details.

Here's the release:

In Florida, CNN will have a debate doubleheader, partnering with the St. Petersburg Times and the University of South Florida for two nationally-televised debates from USF’s Tampa campus. 

On Sunday, October 24, chief political correspondent and anchor Candy Crowley will moderate a one-hour debate among Gov. Charlie Crist (who is seeking an independent bid), Rep. Kendrick Meek (D) and Marco Rubio (R). The debate will air live at 9 a.m. and replay at noon on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley.

The following evening, Monday, October 25, chief national correspondent and anchor John King will take the stage to host a one-hour debate between Florida’s gubernatorial candidates, Rick Scott (R) and Alex Sink (D). The debate will begin at 7 p.m. and air live on a special edition of John King, USA. For more information, visit CNN Political Ticker: CNN to air Florida governor debate.
