At least one of this season's general election debates will be in Spanish.

U.S. Rep. Francisco “Quico” Canseco, R-San Antonio, and his challenger, state Rep. Pete Gallego, D-Alpine, have agreed to a Spanish-language debate in their CD-23 race, the sponsors said.

AARP and San Antonio’s Univision station are sponsoring the Sept. 25 debate and plan to broadcast “an edited version” on Sept. 29. The sprawling congressional district runs from San Antonio west to El Paso.

The debate, to be held at Palo Alto College in San Antonio, will focus on Social Security and Medicare.
