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.
Victory for all New Yorkers! Andrew Cuomo cedes to one on one, prime-time televised debate! SHARE with all your friends and tell them to TUNE IN! #BelieveAgain #MolinaroForNY pic.twitter.com/yc4s7y28fv
