Question of the Day
Debates to begin in Senate race
DOVER | Democrat Chris Coons and Republican Christine O’Donnell are preparing for a busy debate schedule in the U.S. Senate race in Delaware.
The candidates will meet Wednesday night at the University of Delaware in a debate to be broadcast on CNN.
They’ll meet again Thursday in a lunchtime debate sponsored by the Rotary Club of Wilmington.
Also on tap is an Oct. 19 debate hosted by Widener University Law School and radio
Clinton to stump for Democrats
SYRACUSE | Former President Bill Clinton is making stops in upstate New York on behalf of two House Democrats.
He’ll campaign with nine-term Rep. Maurice D. Hinchey in Binghamton and headline a rally with freshman Rep. Dan Maffei in Syracuse.
The former president has emerged as one of the most popular campaign draws for Democrats across the country, even as the party braces for expected large losses in both the House and Senate.
Mr. Hinchey is not viewed as especially vulnerable. But Mr. Maffei is fighting a strong challenge from Republican Ann Marie Buerkle, an anti-abortion activist and one of the so-called “mama grizzlies” endorsed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
Republicans say Mr. Clinton’s visit Monday is the surest sign yet that Democrats are in trouble in normally “blue state” New York. As many as eight House Democrats in the state are believed to be vulnerable.
Senate candidates clash on taxes
