Announced Monday evening, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Gov. Rick Scott are set for their first debate to take place on Oct. 2.

According to a news release from Nelson's campaign, the debate will be hosted by Telemundo 51 in Miami, and will be broadcasted in network stations in Miami, Fort Myers, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach. Telemundo 51's senior political reporter Marilys Llanos and WTVJ NBC6's senior news anchor Jackie Nespral will serve as debate moderators.




Scott, who agreed to three debates in June, responded by leaning on Nelson to agree for the other debates, which will be hosted by CNN and Jacksonville's WJXT.


Nelson's campaign says they're currently reviewing possible forums. The CNN debate would take place in October.
