IN Debate Commission prepares for GOP candidates for U.S. Senate

U.S. Senator Dick Lugar and Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock will face each other just one time before the Primary Election.

The Indiana Debate Commission is working out details of the meeting, such as broadcast time, format, and who will moderate. It’s scheduled for Wednesday, April 11, in the television studios of WFYI in Indianapolis.

Lugar has held the U.S. Senate seat for 35 years. Mourdock has served as Indiana state treasurer since February, 2007.

The debate commission, an Indiana nonprofit group made up of citizens and media, will provide a free live broadcast feed to news organizations interested in carrying the debate.

Max Jones, president of the commission and editor of the Tribune-Star in Terre Haute says as many as five debates are planned by the commission this year from the primary through the general election. He said the commission will continue to engage voters to submit questions for consideration in all 2012 debates.
