GOP candidates for governor agree to debates

Posted by Sheli Muniz -email

TAMPA(AP)---The Republican candidates for governor have agreed to two debates early next month.

Campaign staff for Bill McCollum and Rick Scott said Friday that the two will participate in a Univision debate in Miami on Aug. 2 that will air on the network on Aug. 7.

The other one will be in Tampa on Aug. 5 at the local Fox affiliate studio and will be aired live.

Scott, a former hospital executive who's spent around $20 million of his own fortune on his campaign, holds a lead in the polls over McCollum, who is the state attorney general and a former congressman.

The winner of the Aug. 24 primary will face presumptive Democratic nominee Alex Sink and independent Lawton "Bud" Chiles III in November.
