Sen. John Cornyn portrayed himself Friday night as an agent of change in Washington, as rival David Alameel blasted him for blocking immigration reforms while kowtowing to Wall Street. This was the first and only debate of the contest, as Cornyn seeks a third term and Alameel claws for traction. With Univision as the debate host, a hefty chunk of the questioning was aimed at immigration policy – an area of especially clear disagreement.

On Oct. 24, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn and Democratic rival David Alameel will participate in what for now is their only debate. It will be conducted, unsurprisingly, in English. But it will be broadcast exclusively on Univision the next night, dubbed in Spanish. If it sounds like a skit from Univision’s antic “Sábado Gigante,” with which the debate will share the Spanish-language network’s lineup that Saturday night, it is not. It is just how things have worked out. So far. Felicitas Cadena, community affairs manager for the Univision affiliate in Dallas, which is organizing the debate, said the station is looking for an English-language media partner to broadcast the debate in the original English at 10 p.m. Oct. 25, the same time Univision will be airing it across the state. The station also is open to having the debate live-streamed when it is taped at Mountain View College in Dallas on the evening of Oct. 24. Reporters can cover the debate live and tweet and write about it at will.
For Texans hoping to see – and understand – the only scheduled debate between Sen. John Cornyn and challenger David Alameel, you’d better be able to speak Spanish. Nearly two weeks after the rivals agreed to meet face-to-face on Oct. 24 in Dallas, only the host network, Univision, plans to air the debate. And its stations will dub it into Spanish for broadcast the next night.
Excerpts from Capital Tonight's "Candidate Conversation" with Dr. David Alameel
This week’s State of Texas: the Democratic candidate for state Senator, Dr. David Alameel, sits down with Robert Hadlock.
As the U.S. ramps up attacks against the Islamic State, Texas’ U.S. Senate candidates differ on how best to confront the extremist group. Democratic nominee David Alameel supports using airstrikes against the militants but opposes putting U.S. ground forces in Syria or Iraq. Republican Sen. John Cornyn argues strongly that ground troops should not be ruled out.
