Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic US Senate candidate, announced Thursday that she would accept a third debate with Scott Brown, a forum sponsored by a consortium of news organizations to be televised on several outlets across the state.
Brown did not commit.
“Scott Brown has already accepted four debate offers, including two radio forums that Elizabeth Warren has refused to commit to,” spokesman Colin Reed said in an e-mail. “Everything else is under consideration.”
The two candidates have agreed to two televised debates, one hosted by WBZ-TV commentator Jon Keller and another hosted by a consortium of Western Massachusetts media.
Brown has said he would also participate in two radio debates; Warren has not committed to those. She has said she would like a total of four televised prime-time debates. Brown has said he would like to do a total of three or four debates, but has not specified if they should all be on television.
Warren’s latest proposal, the statewide consortium matchup, would be the highest profile. It includes the Boston Globe, NECN, WCVB-TV, WGBH-TV, WHDH-TV, WBUR, and WGBH radio. It will also be broadcast by several stations in Western Massachusetts, including WGBY-TV in Springfield.
