Sandoval, interviewed on the Nevada NewsMakers television program, said he is still in negotiations with Reid over a debate schedule, but that three debates in the different regions of the state should provide voters with the opportunity they need to evaluate the candidates.
Rory Reid spokesperson Mike Trask said Reid has accepted any and all offers to debate his opponent while Sandoval has turned down at least seven opportunities to do so.
Reid also recently challenged Sandoval to debate him monthly on Jon Ralston’s statewide television program Face to Face. Sandoval has said he will not agree to even one debate on the program, according to Face to Face executive producer Dana Gentry.
Sandoval has a substantial lead over Reid, chairman of the Clark County Commission, according to different poll results.
Sandoval is a former federal judge who stepped down from a lifetime appointment to the bench to run for governor. He defeated incumbent GOP Gov. Jim Gibbons in the June Republican primary.
