Sen. Ted Cruz, challenger Beto O’Rourke to hold 2nd debate

October 3, 2018

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke will take part in another hour-long debate as their U.S. Senate race nears Election Day.

The debate will be the second between the pair and will be televised at 8 p.m. Oct. 16 from KENS-TV to San Antonio viewers. It will also air live in 10 of the state’s largest markets.

The topics are expected to focus on domestic and foreign policy issues.

Cruz and O’Rourke discussed domestic policy issues during a Sept. 21 debate at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. However, a scheduled debate last Saturday in Houston was canceled as Senate Republicans considered voting on Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. That vote was delayed.
