Cassidy agrees to 2 TV debates in the Senate race
BATON ROUGE - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bill Cassidy has agreed to two statewide TV debates against Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu in advance of the Nov. 4 election, fewer than the senator sought.
The GOP congressman's spokesman John Cummins said Wednesday that Cassidy will face off with Landrieu and tea party favorite Rob Maness twice, on Oct. 14 in Shreveport and Oct. 29 in Baton Rouge with both debates televised statewide.
Cassidy has rejected three other debates in which Landrieu had agreed to participate, two in New Orleans and a third in Monroe. New Orleans-based WWL-TV said it intends to proceed with its Oct. 27 debate without Cassidy.
