Since Senator Thad Cochran hasn't responded to invitations to debate Democratic opponent Travis Childers, Childers has given him 20 possible debate dates in October.

Childers has given the Cochran campaign the following dates: October 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29 and 30.

Childers said that WLBT extended an invitation to both candidates on September 4 to a debate to be aired by local news stations across Mississippi. Childers accepted the invitation, but Cochran has yet to respond.

"Although I have been seeking a debate in each congressional district and see no reason why we cannot have a series of debates to allow the public to actually see and hear from their candidates, I am now calling on Senator Cochran to join me for at least one debate to reach Mississippians," Childers said.

The election is November 4 with Senator Cochran facing Childers and Reform candidate Shawn O'Hara.
