SALT LAKE CITY — Current Attorney General Sean Reyes faces off against Democratic challenger Greg Skordas in a previously postponed debate now being held less than two weeks before Election Day.

The two have battled over questions whether Reyes' misinformed the public over the reason for the originally scheduled date of Oct. 1 to be postponed.

As FOX 13 first reported last week, Reyes asked for the debate to be rescheduled because he planned to be in Hawaii to attend a memorial service for his father.

"Later, we found out that Mr. Reyes was here in town holding political events during the time he said he was going to be in Hawaii at a memorial for his father,” said Utah Debate Commission Co-Chair Wayne Niederhauser.

FOX 13 will carry the debate Wednesday at 6 p.m. on fox13now.com, the FOX 13 Roku app (search for "KSTU") and the FOX 13 News Facebook page.
