DALLAS (AP) -

The four Republican candidates vying to be Texas lieutenant governor - a post considered to be the most powerful in the state - are getting their first televised chance to win over voters.

East Texas News will be live streaming the broadcast of tonight's debate tonight at 8 p.m. on this page.
    
Dallas public television station KERA is hosting an hour-long debate at 8 p.m. Monday.
    
Lt. Gov.. David Dewhurst is facing one of the toughest re-election bids of his career. His three challengers for the GOP nomination are Houston Sen. Dan Patrick, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples.
    
The lieutenant governor's power comes from presiding over the Texas Senate, appointing the committee chairs and shaping what legislation makes it to a vote. The governor can veto a bill, but the lieutenant governor can decide if a proposed law makes it to the governor's desk.

According to an e-mail from KERA, a PBS station, the broadcast will feature real-time Spanish language translation and closed captioning. It will be produced jointly by KERA-TV/FM, KXAS-TV, and KXTX-TV.
