How to watch Kevin Stitt and Joy Hofmeister face off in lone debate in the race for Oklahoma governor

Incumbent Gov. Kevin Stitt (left) and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister (right) are vying to take Oklahoma's highest office in November.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt will face off against his Democratic challenger Joy Hofmeister Wednesday night in the only scheduled debate between the pair.

Stitt and Hofmeister will debate at the Will Rogers Theater in Oklahoma City at 5:30 p.m Wednesday. Tickets for in person attendance are no longer available.

The event is sponsored by the Oklahoma State Chamber of Commerce and will be moderated by nonprofit news outlet Nondoc editor Tres Savage and News 9 reporter Storme Jones.

It won’t be locally televised, but can be found streaming online and will be simulcast and re-aired across the country on C-SPAN.

Here are the options to watch it:



  • AT&T U-Verse: 230

Recent polling has shown the race is tightening between the pair. However, Stitt continues to be heavily favored to win. According to a political forecast by fivethirtyeight, the governor wins in the majority of scenarios. Ultimately, voters will decide the outcome on Nov. 8.
