Panhandle PBS will air a second debate in the hotly contested U.S. Senate race in Texas.

The second debate between U.S. Sen Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and challenger U.S. Rep Beto O’Rourke (D-El Paso) will air live at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, on Panhandle PBS.

Cruz and O’Rourke will face off in a moderated half-domestic, half-foreign policy debate in San Antonio.

A scheduled Sept. 30 debate between the two was postponed as the U.S. Senate considered the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. It has yet to be rescheduled.

Panhandle PBS can be watched on cable channel 3 or over-the-air channel 2.1.

For information, call 806-371-5479.
