Carolina Sen. Richard Burr and Democratic challenger Elaine Marshall are making their first joint appearance of the election season.
Burr and Marshall will meet Saturday morning for a forum in Wilmington hosted by the North Carolina Bar Association. Marshall won the Democratic nomination in a runoff on Tuesday while Burr is seeking his first re-election to the Senate seat.
The event is not billed as a debate, but the candidates will answer a series of six questions in between their opening and closing statements. Libertarian Party nominee Michael Beitler will also participate in the forum.
