The major-party candidates for Ohio governor will debate three times this fall.

The campaigns of Republican nominee Mike DeWine and Democratic nominee Richard Cordray announced the debate schedule Friday.

The candidates are scheduled to debate Sept. 19 at the University of Dayton. The other debates are scheduled for Oct. 1 at Marietta College and Oct. 8 at Cleveland State University. The campaigns said additional details, including where the debates will air, will be released later.

Cordray served as federal consumer protection chief in the Obama administration. DeWine is the state attorney general. The winner of the November general election will succeed two-term GOP Gov. John Kasich.
