Another Senate race that may be sans debate this fall: Michigan's Senate contest.
A hot battle never materialized in Michigan, where Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow was once considered potentially vulnerable. Former GOP Rep. Pete Hoekstra hasn't been able to turn it into a race, but he's certainly been agitating for debates. But the Detroit Free Press reports that Stabenow's camp is finished with debate negotiations:
After winning the GOP primary in August, underdog Hoesktra has called for six debates. As in Pennsylvania, the two camps could still agree to a debate -- but with negotiations stopped three and a half weeks from Election Day, time is running short.
