radnofsky, hutchison prepare to face off

This Thursday, Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Barbara Ann Radnofsky will face two conservative opponents in a televised debate: Republican incumbent Kay Bailey Hutchison and Libertarian Scott Jameson.

Senator Hutchison, whose latest ad campaign promotes her as "A Senator for All Texans" and touts her thirteen years experience in the U.S. Senate, has polled consistently ahead this election season. Undaunted, Radnofsky plows on, debuting her first television commercials this week. Radnofsky hopes to better serve the constituents of Texas than her opponent, citing Hutchison's anti-veteran and anti-immigrant votes on the floor of the Senate.

Radnofsky has pledged to make her practice session for the debate open to the media. The day before the debate, Radnofsky will stop in San Antonio to prepare.
"We decided to give the media a chance to see unrehearsed, uncensored preparations for the debate. This kind of access is unprecedented, but we think voters deserve to see what a candidate looks like under pressure and unscripted," said Radnofsky.
The only debate between the three senatorial candidates takes place this Thursday, Oct. 19, in San Antonio. The debate is sponsored by the League of Women Voters and will air on select PBS stations at 9 p.m. Check your local listings for more information.
