INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indiana's three gubernatorial candidates have agreed to face off in three debates before November's election.

The Indiana Debate Commission said Thursday it is looking for venues to host the debates, which will be televised this fall.

Republican Mike Pence, Democrat John Gregg and Libertarian Rupert Boneham are vying to succeed Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels, who is term-limited from seeking re-election in November.

The non-partisan debate commission will determine the format for this fall's debates. The commission organized the only debate between U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar and State Treasurer Richard Mourdock in the Republican Senate primary and also plans one more debate in the Senate race.
