JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri voters are not likely to see many more debates between candidates for statewide office.
Candidates for the U.S. Senate and governor debated two weeks ago. Democratic U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill and Republican Congressman Todd Akin plan to debate once more in suburban St. Louis. Prospects are uncertain for another debate between Democratic Governor Jay Nixon and Republican businessman Dave Spence.
There are no definitive plans for debates between candidates for the lower-profile statewide offices.
Debates get significant attention in the campaign season. They can give voters new insight into candidates and how those running for office would approach various issues.
