Burr Proposes Three Senate Debates For October

North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr says he has accepted an invitation to an October debate and is challenging his eventual opponent to two more forums.

Burr's campaign said in a statement on Wednesday that he would participate in a debate organized by the League of Women Voters of North Carolina and WNCN-TV in Raleigh.

The Republican lawmaker suggested two other debates in October, one held by UNC-TV and another by a yet to-be-determined media outlet in western North Carolina.

Democrats have yet to nominate a candidate for the November election.

Tuesday's primary advanced Secretary of State Elaine Marshall and former state Sen. Cal Cunningham to a runoff. The two began that race with competing campaign events in Raleigh on Wednesday.
