The race for the senate seat currently occupied by Mary Landrieu is certainly the most-watched here in Louisiana. According to the Institute for Southern Studies, the three candidates spent more than $40-million in campaign advertising.

Those who have not cast a ballot have one last chance to hear candidates before next week's election. A final debate in the race for senate takes place Wednesday night.

The stage is set for Senator Mary Landrieu and Republican challengers Representative Bill Cassidy and Col. Rob Maness. It will be held in Baton Rouge.

Due to World Series Game 7 coverage, the debate will not air of FOX 8. Individuals wishing to watch the debate can watch FOX 8's live stream at www.fox8live.com. The debate will also be available on WYES and Bounce TV.

    For tight end Ben Watson it's season #15. But he admitted he didn't know if he was going to get there. " I would say that at the end of last year I was very unsure if I was going to continue playing," Watson said." I knew that if I did play there only a very small number of places that I'd consider going.  One of those teams were the saints..because it was here where Watson had the best statistical season of his career in 2015...
