Congressional debate between Culberson, Fletcher set
The Congressional debate between Republican Rep. John Culberson and Democrat challenger Lizzie Pannill Fletcher has been given a set time and location at the University of Houston.
The Student Center Theater will hold the debate, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
The debate will be live streamed by ABC13 and Univision.
Tickets for the debate will be divided between the two campaigns, ABC13, Univision and the University. The University plans to give out all 40 of its tickets to students, said Senior Media Relations Specialist Jeannie Kever.
The University will soon announce how students can get their tickets.
The Culberson and Fletcher campaigns were able to reschedule the debate. However, the high-profile Senate race between Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Democrat challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke were supposed to have a debate at the University Sept. 30. That debate was postponed, and the two campaigns have not rescheduled.
