From The Day
The major candidates for the U.S. Senate have agreed to an Oct. 23 debate sponsored by The Day and the League of Women Voters at the Garde Arts Center in New London.
George Stephanopoulos, chief Washington correspondent for ABC television news, will moderate the debate among U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman; Ned Lamont, who defeated Lieberman in the Democratic primary; and Republican Alan Schlesinger.
The candidates will face questions from three reporters and editors: Ted Mann, political reporter for The Day; Mark Davis, state Capitol correspondent for WTNH-News Channel 8; and a member of The Day's editorial page staff. News Channel 8, The Day's television partner for the debate, will broadcast it live.
