Democrat Wes Moore will face Republican Dan Cox in November's general election for governor.

Democratic nominee for governor Wes Moore accepted a debate against Republican nominee Dan Cox hosted by Maryland Public Television on Oct. 12, according to a news release on Wednesday night.

“I look forward to the opportunity this October to contrast my vision and values with Dan Cox’s far-right agenda,” Moore said in a statement.

Cox’s campaign spokesperson Lucy Kruse previously said that the Republican was eager to debate his opponent as long as the debate was live and on camera, “without any extra notes.”

Kruse confirmed Cox accepted the debate.

“I am glad Wes Moore has finally accepted an invitation to debate with me," Cox said in a news release on Thursday morning. "I look forward to letting the voters of Maryland see the candidates live, in person and unfiltered."

Moore has previously refused a debate request from the student-run news publication at Morgan State University.
