The Republican challenger for governor, Rob Astorino, has proposed multiple debates in locations around the state with incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The governor has so far not accepted any.
In a video, Astorino says the debates should be held in every region of the state between now and election day.
“I challenge Gov. Cuomo to a series of at least eight regional debates around New York state,” Astorino said.
Astorino says he agreed to five one-hour debates when he ran for his second term as Westchester County executive.
