Do Gubernatorial debates make a difference in elections?

It looks like we will be getting one or more Gubernatorial debates in Iowa this year.

Both the Democrat Deidre DeJear and Governor Kim Reynolds have said they want to do them.

DeJear quite rightly as the challenger has asked for three and the Governor's team says they will respond at the beginning of Fall but they want to debate.

I'm never sure these make a difference. I think largely only political wonks who already know who they are voting for, actually watch them.

I do think it's possible for a candidate to mess up in a debate which could have a minor effect on the outcome of the election, but no one is going to say something so brilliant as to put them over the line.

How about you? Do you think Gubernatorial debates make a difference in elections?
