(CNN) - Delaware Senate candidates Christine O'Donnell (R) and Chris Coons (D) have accepted an invitation to participate in a debate on October 13.
The 90-minute debate will be anchored by CNN lead political anchor Wolf Blitzer and longtime Delaware public television anchor Nancy Karibjanian.
CNN will televise the debate, which will take place at the University of Delaware.
O'Donnell and Coons are running for the Delaware Senate seat previously held by Vice President Joe Biden.
well for sure christne will not pass the debate she is another sarah paling,knows nothing at all about politics and its meaning-if these republicans get back into office you talking about going back we all will be in an absolute terror-we haven't seen terror yet until them republicans get by-we are really in trouble-don't let them fool you they mean the american people no good at all-another bush attack all over again.
The Tea Party just can't stop fightin the Coons can they?
hhhmmm, O'Donnell is a witch? Maybe somebody will drop a house on her...
I wouldn't mind voting for a woman,i voted for Hillary Clinton for President,but I'm not voting for a woman or a man that already accused of misused of fund and dabbled in witchcraft.
She may be under indictment for misuse of campaign funds by then..the case looks pretty solid (by a non=partisan group~) This is no witch hunt..this is the normal investigation of a campaign. And barry, please do not put Hillary Clinton in the same breath as these other women. She has a law degree, vast international experience and understanding, and would scare them into a corner were they ever to debate her.
For the Dimwits that are predicting O"Donnell will back out of this debate, aren't you the same ones that predicted that Al Gore would destroy Bush in their debate? Didn't happen did it, moon-bats?
This should be entertaining to watch.
Can any of you provide a link to your claim that Coons is an "admitted Marxist?" Sounds like BS to me otherwise.
I hope this is done fairly for O'Donnell but I doubt it will be just look at the comments made here about her.
Bill: The truly shocking thing to me is that you and so many other conservatives can see this country, seething with right wingers has "drifted to the left." These days "left" means anything to the center of the lunatic fringe screaming 9/11 conspiracy theories, the birthers, the Swiftboaters, the survivalists, and all the other nuts. Please tell me where all these radical commie hippie leftists are, because I haven’t seen one in years.
Since when do people care about what goes on in or comes out of Delaware?
Like Palin she will stumble over her own ignorance, lack of qualificarions, and if she does show up she will be an embarassment to WOMEN. Condoleeza, Hillary are women who are worthy of being in their repective positions, this nobody from the TEABAGGERS organization backed by Palin is a joke!
Looking forward to that!
That Tea Party wuss will find some excuse to back out and there will be no debate.
"marxist" ... another word that the right should learn the true meaning of
Banning Masturbation, Dabbling in Witchcraft, Promoting Campaign Fraud, Committing Tax Evasion won't solve issues facing America. It does however create a credibility problem...
O'Donnell is just the nut who happened to be there when the Republican Party embraced craziness. Her "I was a witch" nuttery is just the tip of the iceberg.
I can't wait to see the corrupt witch debate Mr. Coons!
she will cast a spell on you.
Some of the worst attacks on Hillary and Chelsea came from your hero, Rush, barry. He called the intelligent, articulate, never in trouble Chelsea the White House dog. Nice. He had some choice words about the Obama girls as well. Why is the right so threatened by INTELLIGENT, well-spoken Christian women who happen to see the world as a bigger place than Alaska and Delaware? Who truly live a Christian life instead of preaching about it, while breaking nearly every commandment. And from what I read about Chris Coons, he has done a great job in Delaware, and will continue to work hard in the Senate...all the while following the rules.
expect Christine to clean the bald marxist clock. She has telegenicity in spades.
The marxist drained his district of all money almost causing a bankruptcy,
I want to debate her. I would trounce her in 1/3 of the time.
Puleese... Coons Marxism paper was written over 20 years ago. So we should just ignore the "witch" admissions due to youthful indiscretions, but still call Coons a Marxist? Oh, and by the way...
Do all O'Donnell supporters really feel that government is too big... But it's okay for the government to force a young girl to give birth to her rapist/father's baby? You're all nuts.
At least marxists are REAL.
why does CNN do this. I watched Jessica let Coons tell her what he would do different that Obama and he said TARP. Jessica knows Bush started TARP but said nothing. She let this democrat accuse Obama with the same lie the teabaggers are doing. Cnn can you do better than let people get away with lies.
She won't back out, and It will be a debate worth watching, I don't know anything about McDonnel, and most of you don't either, I suggest you watch the debate, and stop taking the democrat talking points as gospel.
