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.
