It's unusual to have a bi-partisan debate during primary season. But that's exactly what six of the major candidates for U.S. Senate will do tonight on the University of Houston campus. Red, White, and Blue: Conversations With The Candidates, will feature two Democrats and four Republicans who want to be the next junior senator from Texas.
