The University of Florida is hosting a gubernatorial debate in September.

Other sponsors include the student society Florida Blue Key, the Florida Law Review and the Bob Graham Center for Public Service.

The Sept. 29 debate will be moderated by WOFL anchor John Brown and WTVT anchor Mark Wilson in front of a live studio audience.

Invitations have been extended to GOP Gov. Rick Scott and Democratic candidates Charlie Crist and Nan Rich.

The sponsors say other candidates may be included.
