It's unusual to have a bi-partisan debate during primary season. But that's exactly what six of the major candidates for U.S. Senate will do tonight on the University of Houston campus. Red, White, and Blue: Conversations With The Candidates, will feature two Democrats and four Republicans who want to be the next junior senator from Texas. KUHF's David Pitman asked UH Associate Professor of Political Science Brandon Rottinghaus about the little-known Democratic candidates, how one Republican has managed to chip away at the lead of a chief rival, and whether voters are really getting the information they need from the debates leading up to the May 29th primary.
