The Final Senate Debate Is Tonight

Braun, Brenton and Donnelly got at it at 7, at Newfields, as part of HobNob.

INDIANAPOLIS--The second and final debate between U.S. Senate candidates Joe Donnelly, the incumbent Democrat, and Mike Braun, his Republican challenger, and Libertarian Lucy Brenton, will be tonight at Newfields in Indianapolis. 

That's the new name for the Indianapolis Museum of Art. The debate will be one hour, and is hosted by the Indiana Debate Commission.

The last debate, on Oct. 8, featured discussions about health care, jobs, spending in Washington and the gun rights.

The questions for this debate, as with the last one, are pulled from questions submitted to the Debate Commission through their website. The Debate Commission is non-partisan.

“Since our first debate in 2008, we have had debates in venues open to public participation every election year,” said commission President Gerry Lanosga. “We’re committed to making sure voter interests are primary and that questions submitted by the public will be asked of the candidates.”

The Indy Chamber, which will hold a live watch party for its membership in an adjacent space at Newfields for its popular HobNob event, is underwriting the event. AARP-Indiana, one of the founding member groups of the commission, is providing financial support.

The debate will be carried live on 93 WIBC, starting at 7 p.m.
