Kerrey And Fischer To Debate Again This Evening
Posted: 01 October, 2012
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Republican Deb Fischer and Democrat Bob Kerrey will meet for their final debate in the race for a U.S. Senate seat.
The Monday night debate comes only three days after the two Nebraska Senate candidates held another debate in Omaha. NET News is hosting the final debate, which will be broadcast live at 7 p.m. on NET TV and radio. The candidates will be questioned by a media panel during the hour-long debate. Polls have shown Fischer, a rancher and state senator, leading Kerrey, a former governor and U.S. senator who moved back to Nebraska to run for Senate. The Nebraska seat is seen as crucial to Republican hopes of winning a majority in the U.S. Senate. The winner will replace Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson, who didn’t seek re-election. Big Red Country 104.9 will be carrying the NET broadcast starting at 7:00.
