AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry and his major rivals will appear in an October debate sponsored by The Dallas Morning News and Belo television stations.

The historic matchup featuring the Republican governor, Democratic nominee Chris Bell and independents Carole Keeton Strayhorn and Kinky Friedman is scheduled for Oct. 6.

The decision to have a single debate on the Friday evening of the Texas-Oklahoma football weekend sparked criticism from the Strayhorn camp, which challenged Mr. Perry to participate in more than one televised joint appearance.
