Fourth TV debate in the works for governor's race

Gov. Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger may be spending a lot of time under the TV lights this fall.

Florida's Fox stations, in conjunction with Florida Blue Key and the Florida Law Review, have announced yet another statewide TV debate in the 2014 governor's race. The fourth debate would be held first, on Monday, Sept. 29, at the University of Florida in Gainesville and will air from 6:30-7:30 p.m. before a live studio audience, moderated by anchors John Brown of WOFL in Orlando and Mark Wilson of WTVT in Tampa.

Florida Blue Key said it has invited Scott and the two leading Democrats, Charlie Crist and Nan Rich, and that "the debate may also include other candidates who meet the criterion for eligibility to be released at a later date." Libertarian Party of Florida candidate Adrian Wyllie qualified on Monday for the November ballot for governor.

If the candidates accept the invitations, Florida voters could see four TV debates in the span of two-and-a-half weeks. Three other live debates are planned in the first two weeks of October -- two in Tampa and one in Davie. Scott and Democrat Alex Sink debated each other twice in the last campaign for governor in 2010.

Highly paid Republican operative

Why give Crist any free media?

Why would they invite Nan Rich but not Adrian Wyllie? Something is fishy here
