Genevieve Collins undergoes emergency surgery, debate canceled

A debate over a hotly contested United States House seat is off because of an illness.

Republican candidate Genevieve Collins had complications and a second surgery after an appendectomy last weekend.

Her campaign said she is expected to make a full recovery.

But, Monday night’s planned debate with first-term Democrat Collin Allred was canceled.

Both candidates hope to represent U.S. House District 32 in Northeast Dallas County and parts of southern Collin County.

The debate may be rescheduled.
