Senate Race Candidates Conflict On Debate Plans For Runoff
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana's U.S. Senate race runoff candidates have each agreed to participate in two TV debates ahead of the Dec. 10 election.
But they're not the same pair of debates.
Democrat Foster Campbell, a member of the Public Service Commission, said Thursday he's accepted invitations for a Dec. 1 debate planned by Louisiana Public Broadcasting and a Dec. 2 debate planned by WVLA-TV in Baton Rouge and other Nexstar stations.
A few hours later, the campaign for Republican John Kennedy announced the state treasurer has agreed to the Dec. 2 debate and a Nov. 29 debate planned by WDSU-TV in New Orleans.
It's unclear how the campaigns will resolve the disagreement and if it will mean the two men face off in only one TV debate of the runoff election.
