In La.'s Senate race, will the candidates debate?
BATON ROUGE - With two months before November's election, the three major candidates in Louisiana's U.S. Senate race have rarely appeared at the same events - and never in a head-to-head debate. How many of those will happen remains unclear.
Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu, seeking a fourth term in office, has agreed to participate in five debates. Republican and tea party favorite Rob Maness, running a distant third, has said he'll participate in many, many more if the other candidates would sign up.
The holdout for a confirmed debate schedule is Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, whose campaign has committed publicly to only one match-up: an Oct. 14 debate in Shreveport.
Cassidy's campaign refused Tuesday to answer questions about whether the congressman will square off with his fellow contenders in any other events.
