Mark Tippetts will host a press conference and protest ahead of the Texas gubernatorial debate this week.

On Friday, September 28th, Libertarian Mark Tippetts and supporters of his campaign will host a press conference in Austin. The press conference will directly precede the debate between Republican Greg Abbott and Democrat Lupe Valdez in the race for governor. Tippetts, the third candidate on the ballot, was excluded from the debate by Nexstar Media Group.

During the press conference, supporters of Tippetts will also tape their mouths shut to signify their displeasure with Libertarian candidates being excluded from debates.

The press conference will begin at 4:30pm.
