NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Governor Andrew Cuomo has agreed to take part in a televised debate with Republican challenger Marc Molinaro.

Molinaro confirmed on Monday he will take part in it.

The debate will take place Tuesday afternoon and then air on tape delay at 7 p.m. on WCBS. 

According to a Quinnipiac University poll, Cuomo has a substantial edge over Molinaro at 58 to 35 percent. Molinaro also finds himself at a big fundraising disadvantage with just $200,000 versus Cuomo's $9 million.
