U.S. Senate candidates Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren will go head to head on Thursday night in a live televised debate at WBZ studios in Boston.
The debate, the first in a series of four, will take place on Sept. 20th from 7 to 8 p.m. on WBZ-TV, WBZ Newsradio 1030 and CBS Boston.com.
Jon Keller, WBZ-TV News’ Political Analyst will serve as moderator of the debate.
“Debates are an opportunity to get beyond the sound bites and find out where the candidates really stand,” said Senator Brown in a statement. “... I am pleased to accept this TV debate offer so that Massachusetts voters will be able to see these differences for themselves.”
Warren told CBS Boston she plans to “Talk about what I’ve been talking about all around the Commonwealth for a year now, and that is, the game is rigged.”
This first televised debate comes at a time when Warren has taken the lead in recent polling among likely Massachusetts voters.
Future debates will be held on Oct. 1 at UMass Lowell, Oct. 10 in Springfield, and Oct. 30 on WGBH.
