Nearly all the pachyderms vying for the GOP gubernatorial nomination will lock tusks in a epic battle of wits and platitudes tonight at 7 p.m. on the University of Georgia campus.

From WNEG-TV, the local TV station that's broadcasting the sold-out event sponsored by the Clarke County Republican Party:

All seven gubernatorial candidates were invited to participate in the Athens debate. Confirmed candidates attending are U.S. Representative Nathan Deal, ex-Secretary of State Karen Handel, [ed. former] president pro tempore of the state Senate Eric Johnson, state representative Austin Scott, state Senator Jeff Chapman, and businessman Ray McBerry. State insurance commissioner and candidate John Oxendine reported that a scheduling conflict will prevent him from participating.

Damn liberal media always finds a way to push out the Ox.

According to the WNEG-TV's press release, metro Atlantans can watch the debate live on CBS Atlanta and cbsatlanta.com. 640 WGST will also broadcast the battle of the elephants.
