LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The two major-party candidates for U.S. Senate in Michigan have yet to agree on debates despite the election being less than two months away.
The incumbent, Democrat Debbie Stabenow of Lansing, says she's accepted two debates, but Republican challenger Pete Hoekstra of Holland hasn't signed on.
Hoekstra wants to take part in six debates that would be broadcast on network television. The GOP candidate's campaign says Hoekstra would like to work out a longer debate schedule before agreeing to the two Stabenow accepted.
Stabenow says two debates have been the tradition for Senate candidates in the state since 1996.
The Detroit News reports Wednesday that both candidates blame the other for not communicating.
