BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A date is set for a debate in New York’s governor’s race.

The debate is scheduled for Oct. 22 in Buffalo. It will feature Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Republican Rob Astorino, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins and Libertarian Michael McDermott.

The debate is sponsored by The Buffalo News and WNED/WBFO of Buffalo and will be televised.

The exchange is likely to be the only one before the Nov. 4 election.

Cuomo had offered to debate Astorino one-on-one on public radio, but Astorino rejected the offer, saying any head-to-head debate between the two major party candidates should be televised. Astorino had previously called for eight debates with Cuomo.
