It appears that the debates between Linda McMahon and Chris Murphy have been more or less settled for now. While Murphy committed to nine debates leading up the November election, McMahon has agreed to the following four, according to her campaign.
- Oct. 7, hosted by WFSB on Face the State
- Oct. 11, hosted by Fox 61 and the Hartford Courant at the University of Connecticut
- Oct. 15, hosted by The Day and WTNH at the Garde Theater in New London
- Oct. 18, hosted by the Connecticut Broadcasters Association in Hartford
