Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison agree they will debate as she seeks the job he now holds.

Perry on Friday issued a statement saying he has accepted an invitation from the Tarrant County and Denton County GOP to debate in Denton this fall.

Perry also said he has accepted debate invites from Dallas-based media group Belo Corp. and the Collin County GOP.

A spokeswoman for Hutchison, who this week officially kicked off her campaign, said the senator looks forward to working out scheduling for many debate requests.

Jennifer Baker said Hutchison is "excited to talk about her conservative vision for the future of Texas."

Hutchison has agreed to the Belo debate, but Baker had no specifics about other debates with Perry in which the senator will take part.
