(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The three candidates for Indiana Governor have agreed to face off in three debates before the November election.


Republican Mike Pence, Democrat John Gregg, and Libertarian Rupert Boneham are trying to succeed Mitch Daniels, the current governor who is term-limited.


The formats for the three debates and their moderators will all be decided by the Indiana Debate Commission, the organization sponsoring the debates.


“Candidates have agreed in principle to three debates this fall with dates to be determined at a later time,” said debate commission president Max Jones, editor of the Tribune-Star in Terre Haute. “The statewide debates will provide widespread access for Hoosier voters.”


The Indiana Debate Commission is looking for venues to host the televised debates. Venues can apply on the commission’s website through Friday, July 27.


On average, more than 50 broadcast outlets across the state of Indiana carry the debates with the commission’s assistance.
