Ben Hall, a candidate for Houston mayor, is challenging incumbent Annise Parker to a series of six debates to “share our contrasting ideas and vision for the future of this great city through a series of debates.”
His invitation was hand-delivered today, and asks Parker to accept his invitation to three debates between the days after Labor Day and before early voting, plus an additional three debates after early voting has commenced.

Parker’s campaign has not responded. We will bring you any developments as they become available.
