Decision 2020: Straight Talk from the Candidates

HOUSTON – KPRC 2 and Click2Houston.com presented dozens of political candidates with a chance to talk directly to voters in “Decision 2020: Straight Talk From The Candidates.”

The commercial-free program which aired in primetime ahead of the start of early voting features 19 races of high interest to the Houston area, including statewide races, U.S. congressional races, Texas House and Senate races, and Harris and Fort Bend County races.

Each participating candidate was asked to answer the question: “Why should voters cast their vote for you?”

KPRC 2 does not endorse any of the candidates.

The offices featured and the candidates invited to speak are all officially on the ballot, according to the Texas Secretary of State, and were chosen by an independent political analyst who verified the races are of high public interest and that the candidates are leading candidates in their respective races. The candidates who accepted the invitation to record at KPRC 2 had their messages air without any interruption.

You can watch the entire program in the video player attached to this story.
