The California Debate 2014: Gubernatorial Debate
California incumbent Governor Jerry Brown (D) agreed to only one Gubernatorial Debate during the 2014 election with Republican opponent Neel Kashkari. That meant only one opportunity for voters to hear the candidate's views on complex issues facing the State of California before going to the polls. The debate was carried live statewide by The California Channel and sponsored by San Francisco Public Television Station KQED, Los Angeles Times, and Telemundo.
