CEDAR RAPIDS — The major party candidates for Iowa’s open U.S. Senate seat have agreed to three debates.

U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley and state Sen. Joni Ernst have agreed to meet for televised debates on Sept. 28 in Des Moines, Oct. 11 in the Quad Cities and Oct. 16 in Sioux City. The sponsors are the Des Moines Register and KCCI-TV, KWQC-TV and the Quad City Times, and KCAU-TV, respectively.

The race for the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin is a dead heat, according to recent polls. It’s also considered a key race for both Democrats, who want to hold their majority in the Senate, and Republicans who believe they have an opportunity to regain control.

In a joint statement from the campaigns, the candidates’ spokespersons said:

“We’re excited that Iowans will have the opportunity to see Bruce Braley and Joni Ernst debate. We look forward to a robust discussion and we’ll be finalizing exact details with the hosts in the coming days.”
