INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana gubernatorial candidates have agreed to a series of three debates, while plans for debates among the state’s U.S. Senate candidates haven’t been finalized.

The nonprofit Indiana Debate Commission announced details Wednesday for debates involving gubernatorial nominees Democrat John Gregg, Republican Eric Holcomb and Libertarian Rex Bell.

The first debate on Tuesday covering education issues will be at an Indianapolis high school before an audience of students, teachers and administrators.

Two other televised debates are set for Oct. 3 at the University of Indianapolis and Oct. 25 at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville. Both hour-long debates are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET.

The commission says it plans two televised debates among Senate candidates Democrat Evan Bayh, Republican Todd Young and Libertarian Lucy Brenton.
