The debate over debates in the race for governor continued on Thursday, with Republican candidate for governor Rob Astorino insisting on more forums being scheduled with Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

In a video released by his campaign this morning, Astorino accused Cuomo of “playing games” on the debate issue by not agreeing to a one-on-one televised debate.

The Cuomo campaign has accepted a televised debate in Buffalo and a WNYC radio debate one-on-one.

Astorino, who has accepted the Buffalo TV debate that will include the Green Party and Libertarian candidates, says he is still holding out hope for two additional TV debates from WABC in New York City and Time Warner Cable News/NY1.

“So, let’s talk this week. You and me. Let’s stop the games and finalize this once and for all and give the voters what they deserve: A good, honest discussion on the issues,” Astornio said in the video.

The Cuomo campaign has said the two debates it agreed to strike the right balance.

Cuomo himself on Wednesday said it was surprising that Astorino turned down a debate on WNYC in New York City.

“I think two debates were sufficient,” Cuomo said. “He’s declined, he only wants to do one.”

“It’s a little surprising. He was first I believe wanted debates. We then agreed to debate and then he didn’t want to debate,” Cuomo added.
