August 22, 2014 • State News

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and Democratic challenger Gary [auth] King have agreed to televised gubernatorial debates in October, including one by a Spanish-language TV station.

Martinez campaign spokesman Chris Sanchez and King campaign manager Keith Breitbach confirmed Thursday the candidates will participate in debates Oct. 6 by Univision affiliate KLUZ-TV and Oct. 19 by KOAT-TV and the Albuquerque Journal.

Martinez will speak in Spanish during the Univision debate. Breitbach said King will use a translator.

The candidates previously agreed to a Sept. 22 forum in Albuquerque by a real estate group and they’ll appear separately Sept. 18 at a New Mexico State University conference.

Martinez hasn’t committed to other forums or debates, but Breitbach said King has agreed to others and “is willing to debate Susana Martinez anytime.”
