Cunningham, Marshall Finalize NC Television Debate

Democratic U.S. Senate candidates Cal Cunningham and Elaine Marshall have agreed to participate in one televised debate and are close on another before their primary runoff next month.

The campaigns of the Lexington attorney and North Carolina's secretary of state confirmed on Thursday the two will appear together June 15 at the WNCN-TV studios in Raleigh.

Cunningham spokesman Jared Leopold also said Cunningham had agreed to a WRAL-TV debate June 10. Marshall spokesman Thomas Mills expects there will be a WRAL debate but needed to check the date.

More debates may occur.

Marshall led Tuesday's primary but failed to win enough votes for the nomination. Cunningham finished second and called for the June 22 runoff.

The winner will challenge Republican Sen. Richard Burr in November.

    Should be very exiting. Two people that nobody wants to hear.
