Got a little debate withdrawal now that the all the presidential debates are over?
Never fear. You can get your fix of zingers and talking points this week with three debates – two on TV and one on radio – between Maine's U.S. Senate candidates.
WCSH-6 will broadcast its live debate Monday at 7 p.m.
WMTW-8 will broadcast its live debate Tuesday at 7 p.m.
MPBN will hold a debate Thursday at 8 p.m. and broadcast it live on radio. MPBN will rebroadcast it on the radio several times in the days before the election and broadcast it on television Friday at 9 p.m. and next Sunday at 5 p.m.
The three major candidates, Independent Angus King, Republican Charlie Summers and Democrat Cynthia Dill, are expected to participate. The three other independent candidates, Steve Woods, Andrew Ian Dodge and Danny Dalton, also will get some statewide exposure with days left before Election Day.
Open Season is your guide to the 2014 campaign. Our team of political writers has its sights set on Maine’s major elections, from the Blaine House to the U.S. Capitol.
