LANSING, Mich. (AP) - It appears Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow and her Republican opponent John James will meet for two televised debates before squaring off in the November election.
The candidates said Tuesday they accepted debate invitations from WGVU-TV in Grand Rapids and the Detroit Economic Club. Debate details, including the economic club's TV station partner, have not been worked out.
The debates would be held Oct. 14 and Oct. 15.
James, a business executive and Iraq War veteran, says he agreed to four other debates after asking media outlets and organizations to partner. But Stabenow, who is running for a fourth term, seems unlikely to do more debates.
She says WGVU and the Detroit Economic Club have a long history of hosting Senate debates reaching viewers statewide.
