Mary Landrieu Agrees To Four Senate Race Debates
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu has agreed to four TV debates leading up to the Nov. 4 election.
The Democratic incumbent is in a tight race, seeking a fourth term against two Republican challengers.
Landrieu's campaign announced Tuesday she'll participate in an Oct. 2 New Orleans debate hosted by WDSU-TV, an Oct. 27 New Orleans debate hosted by WWL-TV and an Oct. 29 Baton Rouge debate hosted by Raycom Media, LSU's journalism school and WRKF.
The senator also agreed to a Monroe debate with KNOE-TV and KALB-TV, but a final date hasn't been set.
Landrieu's closest competitor, U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, hasn't announced what debates he'll attend. Tea party favorite Rob Maness has said he's participating in the first three and is expected to agree to the Monroe date as well.
