Senator Leticia Van de Putte Releases Texas First Debate Schedule
Texans deserve a race for Lieutenant Governor as grand as this great state.
The cornerstone of Senator Leticia Van de Putte’s service and campaign is to put Texas first. That is why today, she released her Texas First debate schedule, giving Texans in many regions of the state an opportunity to hear directly from the candidates. In addition to the debates listed below, Senator Van de Putte welcomes additional debate proposals from El Paso, Lubbock, and Corpus Christi.
“Candidates must earn the trust of Texans and make every effort to inform voters about their record and vision,” said Scott Remley, Van de Putte Campaign Manager. “In that spirit, Senator Van de Putte proposes that every debate be simulcast in English and Spanish, encourages the incorporation of social media components, and requests that debate organizers strive for a variety of venues and formats that increase accessibility for all Texans.”
