It looks like New York voters will have only a single opportunity to see the candidates debate before this year's gubernatorial election. Republican Rob Astorino says he won't accept an invitation to a one-on-one public radio debate with Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo that was tentatively set for later this month. That leaves a single televised debate in Buffalo with Cuomo, Astorino, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins and Libertarian Michael McDermott. Astorino had initially called for eight debates in the race. He had objected to the public radio debate, saying it should have been televised. A date for the event has not been announced and the election is November 4th.
