Second debate between Senate candidates Berg, Heitkamp airs tonight

FARGO – North Dakota’s candidates for U.S. Senate will square off in their second debate today at Prairie Public Broadcasting here, which will then air the debate tonight on TV and radio.

The debate between U.S. Rep. Rick Berg, R-N.D., and former North Dakota attorney general Heidi Heitkamp is scheduled to last half an hour.

Prairie Public will air the debate on radio at 6:30 p.m. and on television at 9 p.m.

In Fargo, Prairie Public radio station KDSU-FM broadcasts on frequency 91.9 and television station KFME-DT transmits on Channel 13.

The first debate between Heitkamp and Berg was Sept. 5 in Bismarck and sponsored by the North Dakota Broadcasters Association. Among the topics debated were Social Security, taxes and the state’s oil boom.

The candidates also debated health care and energy policy during a candidate forum last Thursday in Bismarck organized by the North Dakota Chamber of Commerce, the Bismarck Tribune reported.

Berg and Heitkamp are slated for a third and final debate on Oct. 25 sponsored by Dakota Media Access, The Bismarck Tribune and the League of Women Voters.
