Kennedy Agrees to One More TV Debate
Fox News will host the Oct. 24 debate between congressional candidates Joe Kennedy III and Sean Bielat, Boston.com reports.
One more debate added to the schedule for the Mass. Fourth District race, Boston.com reports that Joseph Kennedy III agreed to meet his opponent one more time. The debate will be Oct. 24, on Fox 25.
After congressional candidate Kennedy agreed to debate his opponent Sean Bielat three times before the election, Bielat reported he was disappointed by the number of debates.
The first of the debates was broadcast Sept. 30, and took place at the WCVB-TV 5 studios in Needham. Kennedy and Bielat are slated to face off in MassINC’s “American Dream” forum in Fall River tonight, Oct. 10, and at Wellesley College for a League of Women Voters debate on Oct. 15.
In an open letter he posted to his Patch Blog, Bielat wrote, "I was very disappointed to see your press release today. Apparently, you have deemed that three debates are sufficient. You have insisted that none of the three be a live television or radio debate."

Bielat, who challenged Barney Frank for the congressional seat in 2010, will take questions from Patch readers on Thursday, Oct. 11 at noon in a live chat here on Patch. Kennedy will answer reader questions on Friday, Oct. 12 and 1 p.m.
