The Sweep: Here Comes Senate Debate Season

Senate Debate Season: Battleground Edition!

Grab your popcorn, folks. It’s the moment all you political junkies have been waiting for: Senate debate season! We’ll be paying especially close attention to the October 25 Senate debate in Pennsylvania, where Democratic candidate John Fetterman—who had a stroke in May that kicked him off the campaign trail for several months—will debate Republican celebrity television host Dr. Mehmet Oz. But here are a few other dates we’re adding to our calendars: 

  • Wisconsin: GOP Sen. Ron Johnson will debate Democrat Mandela Barnes on October 7 and October 13.

  • Georgia: Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock will debate Republican Herschel Walker October 14.

  • Ohio: Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan will debate Republican J.D. Vance on October 10 and 17.
