Flores-Edwards To Debate Tonight In Internet Simulcast

AP poll: Half of voters surveyed nationwide are undecided in Congressional races

Bryan – Bill Flores will square off with U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards tonight at 6 in a debate simulcast from this city's Briarcrest Country Club.

The debate is open to the public, but seating is limited. Sponsors advised those who want to be there to come early.

Listeners will be able to hear the debate live on the websites of and WTAW 1620 Talk Radio.

Radio WTAW's website has the full sound track of last night's debate available on its web page.

According to the poll released by the Associated Press this morning, 45% of voters sampled nationwide said they could change their mind on election day while a 50% share of those surveyed said they would like the challenger to beat the incumbent in their Congressional District. Only 40% favored keeping the same U.S. Representative.

In last night's debate Mr. Flores clashed vigorously with Mr. Edwards' opinions on Social Security, health care and the budget deficit.

They even disagreed on the basis for Congressional authority to become involved in public discussions of such matters as Baylor University's membership in the Big 12 Football League, a matter in which Mr. Edwards played a key role earlier in the year.

Mr. Edwards cited Article 1 authority under the Constitution as well as his First Amendment rights to discuss anything he may choose to discuss while Mr. Flores brought up the 10th Amendment stricture against federal authorities becoming involved in any matters not specifically covered by the articles of the Constitution.
