FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) - The two leading candidates in the state's U.S. Senate race this year are meeting for a debate at the Minnesota State Fair.
The Thursday debate between Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Republican Kurt Bills, a state representative, takes place over the noon hour Thursday.
It will be moderated by Mike Mulcahy, the political editor of MPR News.
Klobuchar and Bills shared a stage only once previously this campaign, at a forum on agricultural issues earlier this month in southwestern Minnesota.
But Thursday's debate will be their first chance to debate a wide range of national issues.
The pair has only one further debate scheduled at this time, another MPR-sponsored meet-up on the weekend prior to the election.
