WPXI-TV to air US Senate debate in late October

PITTSBURGH — Pennsylvania’s US Senate candidates have agreed to an exclusive debate, one you can only see on Channel 11.

Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz had originally proposed live debates starting in early September. Democrat John Fetterman, who suffered a stroke in May, did not commit to any debates until last week. Now, he has committed to one.

The debate is set for Tuesday, Oct. 25, just two weeks before Election Day.

Channel 11′s very own Lisa Sylvester will co-moderate with Dennis Owens from ABC 27 and you can be sure we will be tough but fair.

We here at Channel 11 believe Pennsylvania voters deserve to hear from their statewide candidates on the issues they care about the most.

The debate will also stream live on all of our WPXI News apps, which you can download for free by clicking here.
