Collins, Bellows square off in 2nd debate
October 22, 2014 21:25 GMT
BANGOR, Maine (AP) -- Republican Sen. Susan Collins and Democratic challenger Shenna Bellows are squaring off in another debate.
The two are meeting Wednesday evening in Bangor for the only debate that'll be televised live to a statewide audience, courtesy of Maine Public Broadcasting Network.
Polls show Collins has a double-digit lead over Bellows, the former executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine. But Bellows has continued to go on the attack and is campaigning on Democratic staples like increasing the minimum wage and protecting Social Security.
The first debate was Tuesday night in Presque Isle. Another debate is scheduled for Thursday night, and two more debates are slated for next week.
