Cuomo, Molinaro Set Debate:


The debate between incumbent New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and GOP challenger Marc Molinaro will finally happen.  It will be taped this afternoon and broadcast this evening at 7 p.m. on WCBS-TV in New York City.  In the upstate, many stations have also announced 7 p.m. broadcasts, but viewers are advised to check their local CBS affiliate for viewing times to be certain.  After turning down multiple requests for a debate, Cuomo finally made the suggestion to meet today on Sunday night.  Molinaro agreed Monday.  The last minute nature of the agreement leaves out third-party candidates Stephanie Miner, Howie Hawkins, and Larry Sharpe, who have all expressed disappointment.
