SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Texas' 23rd congressional district is huge, sweeping 550 miles from San Antonio to El Paso. Also huge is tonight's debate between Republican incumbent Representative Quico Canseco (R-San Antonio) and Democratic challenger Pete Gallego (Alpine). It's receiving national attention, partly because the race is one of the most hotly contested in the country, but also because the entire debate will be in Spanish.

Sponsored by Univision and AARP of Texas, it will allow the two candidates, both of whom are Mexican-American, to better connect with the majority of the districts' voters, according to AARP's Rafael Ayuso. (contd.) Podcast and entire story available: http://www.newsservice.org/index.php
