U.S. Senate seat hopefuls to appear on 'Meet the Press'

Tuesday, August 8, 2006

Two contenders for a Missouri U.S. Senate seat will appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" for a debate this fall. Republican U.S. Sen. Jim Talent and his challenger, Democratic candidate Claire McCaskill, will appear on the program Oct. 8, according to a news release from McCaskill's campaign. "It would provide an excellent opportunity to show how the issues being debated in Missouri are reflective of the ongoing national discussion," McCaskill campaign manager Richard Martin said in the release. Debates between the two are also expected in September and October across Missouri.
