Watch local and statewide televised debates online (update: and then there were one)

One week until the election folks.

Update October 27, third governor debate:

The candidates were back it on Tuesday night in Florence. Frankly, it
was much the same and the biggest news out of these series of debates
is that both candidates avoided saying or doing anything so bad that
would make it to YouTube or The Daily Show.

Runner up to that would be the Haley-Sheheen sparing on the proposed
construction of Interstate 73 in South Carolina, which Haley said she
wouldn't use tolls, allow a proposed gas tax hike, or earmarks to fund.
To which Sheheen responded, "Things don’t just happen."

In all my favorite report from the night is likely The State's report with the Associated Press's as a close second.

If you missed the debate, tune in at C-Span online.

Update October 26, second governor debate:

Last night's governor debate has come and gone (get a report about it on our sister site in Charleston) and that just leaves tonight's debate at 7 p.m. at Francis Marion University in Florence, you can watch it at and C-SPAN.
