Candidates agree to second televised debate

The next televised gubernatorial debate will not be held in the state of Maryland.

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, a Democrat, and former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, a Republican, will travel beyond the state's borders and spar with each other for an hour at a live forum noon Thursday in the nation's capital. The event, to be hosted by The Washington Post, WAMU radio and WUSA TV, has been the topic of considerable bickering between the two campaigns, but came together shortly after today's WJZ forum.

The debate is free and open to the public but anyone wishing to attend must register and seats are limited, according to The Post. The event will be moderated by Pulitzer prize winner Mary Jordan, who has reported from London, Tokyo and Mexico City.
Two additional radio debates are set for next week: One on Oct. 21 to be broadcast by WOLB and another the next day at WTOP.

Another opportunity for O'Malley to talk about his plans to increase our taxes.

wasn't there anywhere in MD for them to debate?

I know OweMalley is a DC boy and all... but really? Why didn't they have the debate in Shrewsbury? Thats where all the MD residents flee to to avoid this place.

You two must be a riot at parties.
