There’s another televised debate in the New Mexico gubernatorial race to put on the calendar – if you speak Spanish.
The candidates, Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and Democratic Attorney General Gary King, have agreed to participate in a Spanish-language debate on Oct. 6 that will be televised on Univision.
Martinez plans to speak Spanish in the debate, according to her campaign. King will participate in the debate through an interpreter.
Political analyst Brian Sanderoff said the Spanish-language debate with only one candidate speaking Spanish would be the first of its kind in New Mexico.
