Scott Brown, Elizabeth Warren face unique challenges in first debate

In their first face-to-face meeting, US Senator Scott Brown and his Democratic rival, Elizabeth Warren, face delicate challenges: She must engage him on issues without seeming aggressive; he must fend off her charges without hurting his likable image.

Brown and Warren are set to take the stage in a Boston television station Thursday evening, stripped of their political handlers and media specialists. The ­debate, which will give the public its first unspun look at how they handle themselves, is scheduled to air live on WBZ-TV (Channel 4) and C-SPAN at 7 p.m.
