According to Jeffers (click here for full story), The Texas Democratic Party and the Lyndon B. Johnson Foundation will host the debate. CNN will telecast the forum live from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The debate will also be telecast on Univision.
The New York Times quotes Obama’s Texas director Adrian Saenz as saying “We are pleased that Sen. Obama will have the opportunity to debate in Texas, and that it will air on Univision, ensuring a wide and diverse audience.” A Houston debate that was planned at one time is now in doubt.
