Scott Brown, Elizabeth Warren to Debate Tonight in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/AP) — This week, Republican Senator Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren are set to face off in their only Western Mass. debate.

Wednesday night at 7:00, the candidates will take the stage at Symphony Hall in Springfield for their third televised debate.

The face-off comes a day after Brown received the endorsement of former Republican New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman and Warren met with construction workers at a Boston work site.

As the candidates gear up, outside groups are, too, hoping to affect the outcome of the high-profile race.

The groups say they’re respecting a pledge signed by Brown and Warren, aimed at barring third-party organizations from buying television, radio and Internet ads.

Polls show the race, already the most expensive in state history, remains tight.

The debate will air LIVE on ABC40, FOX 6, and streaming online at wggb.com.
