ODESSA - Just five days before the Presidential election, the University of Texas of the Permian Basin will be the place to be to talk politics.

That's because U.T.P.B. officials say the race for the White House will be the big topic as part of its Distinguished Lecture Series.

On Wednesday, they announced two journalists, Liberal Bob Beckel and Conservative Cal Thomas will speak on Thursday, October 30th.

While both Beckel and Thomas disagree on many issues, they will hold a special presentation on the ways Americans can unite on many different issues.   The event will take place at the UTPB gym at 7 pm, and will be free and open to the public.
