2010: Livebloggin' the GOP Debate Tonight

Don't just watch the debate. Follow along with our reporters in Dallas and Austin with our team liveblog event tonight.

Press room at the first GOP debate

Tonight's the second and likely final debate with GOP gubernatorial hopefuls Gov. Rick Perry, U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and late surger Debra Medina. The debate - sponsored by media company Belo - will take place in a television studio in Dallas, starting at 7pm. But you can watch on television and follow along with reporters Emily Ramshaw (who will be sitting right outside the studio in Dallas), Ross Ramsey (who's providing some additional play-by-play from his living room) and myself. I'll be with a focus group of undecided Republican voters in a studio in Austin, where we will watch the debate together and have their reactions afterward.

The liveblogging action will start around 6:30, right here at The Texas Tribune. Ramshaw will provide behind-the-scenes photos so you can feel like you're there.

Y'all come on back now, ya hear?
