Triple-header debate night

Political junkies can watch a debate triple-header tonight, or as much of three different matchups as they can stand.

The second presidential debate, this one a Town Hall style matchup, starts tonight at 6 p.m. Pacific. The 90-minute debate is live on the three major networks, the cable news channels and C-Span. If you have the TV on, you'll actually have to work a little bit not to see it.

At 8 p.m., the final Washington gubernatorial debate takes place in Seattle at KING-TV, and will be carried in Spokane on KREM-TV Channel 2, which is part of the Belo network. At 9 p.m., KSPS-TV Channel 7 will air the U.S. Senate debate; it was taped last Friday afternoon (our story is here) and aired in Seattle that evening, but this is the first time it has been broadcast in Spokane. (Editor's note: An early version of this post listed the wrong time for the Senate debate.)

Democrats are gathering to watch the presidential and gubernatorial debate at the Obama campaign Spokane field office, 239 W. Main. No word yet on a Republican gathering to watch the festivities.
