LIVE: Arkansas Senate Debate: 1 p.m. ET

(CNN) - Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Arkansas, faces off against Rep. John Boozman, R-Arkansas, at a 1 p.m. ET debate in one the mostly hotly contested Senate races of the 2010 Election.

Polling shows that Boozman would defeat the two-term incumbent senator if the election were held today – a victory Republicans would need to help win back the Senate majority. The GOP needs a net gain of 10 seats to wrest control of the Senate from Democratic hands – an unlikely prospect at this point unless a strong anti-Democratic wave sweeps across nation. Republicans will certainly pick up seats, but the question is will it be enough to win back the Senate.

Tune into this critical Senate debate at 1 p.m. ET.

    Guess what, a strong anti demorat wave is crossing this country and I like the chances that the Republicans can take over the Senate, after all they will take over Congress and oust botox pelosi.

    I keep hearing Blanche say we need to pay for tax cuts. That would be like saying I need to find a way to pay for me for my paycheck from work. Shouldn't it be saying that we need to be able to pay for all of the government programs.

    Secondly, why are all Democrats against big pharm, big oil, big box stores, and big banks, but for big government. Every one of those private industries produce or provide. All government does is increase costs and limit oppritunity.

    Boozman is just against everything.

    We don't need another Republican going to Washington to stonewall any new idea that comes down the pike.
