New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and challenger Cynthia Nixon could face off in a televised debate during prime-time, the New York Daily News reports.

Local station WABC-TV has contacted both Democratic primary candidates to pitch the idea, which Nixon quickly accepted.

"I believe voters deserve to hear a frank and direct discussion of the real issues facing New Yorkers and the difference between my progressive vision for this state and Gov. Cuomo's centrist record," Nixon said in a video released Monday on YouTube.

The Daily News could not reach the governor's campaign spokeswoman, Abbey Fashouer, in time for a comment. Cuomo has not publicly stated if he will debate Nixon, saying previously he would make a decision at a later date.

"So, what's it going to be Andrew?" Nixon asked Cuomo in the video.

"Just you and me, on a stage. No huge multi-candidate free-for-all like you always insist on – one-on-one, no distractions, and nowhere to hide. Your move."
