RE: Tonight's 4th and final Governor's Debate

Hi Folks:

The fourth and final debate between gubernatorial candidates Gray Davis and Dan Lungren will be held this evening (Thursday, October 15) from 7 - 8 p.m. The debate is sponsored by KGO-TV, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, and the San Francisco Labor Council/AFL-CIO, and is being held at San Francisco State University.

Several TV, radio and cable stations, as well as Internet sites, will offer live coverage of tonight's debate, including:

On the Radio:

The California Report (public radio stations statewide)
KNX-AM 1070 (Los Angeles)
KFBK-AM (Sacramento)

On TV:

KGO-TV Channel 7 (San Francisco)
Bay-TV Channel 35 (San Francisco)
The California Channel (statewide)
KCRA-TV Channel 3 (Sacramento)
KVIE-TV Channel 6 (Sacramento)
KGTV-TV Channel 10 (San Diego)

On the Internet:

Bay TV online (
The California Channel online (
The Democracy Network (

In addition, I'll be participating in the California Report's post-debate program, airing between 8 - 8:30 p.m. on public radio stations.

Although Davis and Lungren originally committed to five debates during the campaign season, both candidates are now saying that there will not be a fifth debate.

Please excuse this late debate notice -- we've been "pedal to the metal" the past few days putting together our new 1998 California Campaign Contribution Database.
