East Texans Talk About Tonight's Gubernatorial Debate

      A televised debate for the Governor's race will air tonight on KLTV 7.

Only about one in every five people we talked with today in Longview said they were interested enough to even tune in to the debate.

More than half the folks we talked to in Tyler and Longview, didn't even know it was being televised. Many said they have good reasons for either watching, or not watching the debate.

      "I don't think my wife is going to let me watch all the debate tonight; I'll have to tape it and watch it when she's not home," said Longview resident Rodney Malone.

    "It may be well for any people who are really interested in watching and discussing. I don't have anybody to discuss it with," said Joanna Cochran, who will not watch the debate.

       The debates will air tonight on KLTV beginning at 7pm.
