FINALLY HAPPENING: Andrew Cuomo & Marc Molinaro will meet in primetime debate tonight

There will be a debate.

It will happen on AM radio in Manhattan, but will be made available across the state. It will happen Tuesday at 7 p.m.; and will be made available to CBS affiliates around the state, too.

On Monday morning, Molinaro said he agreed, and he pressed for two more televised debates: in Buffalo and the Southern Tier.

“As usual, the forgotten upstate New Yorker is getting screwed by Andrew Cuomo,” Molinaro said.

Cuomo had not previously committed to a debate against his gubernatorial foes, which include three third-party candidates. He drew wide criticism for not agreeing to a debate prior to Election Day, Nov. 6, as he seeks a third term.
