Indiana’s five Republican candidates for U.S. Senate have agreed to take part in a debate next April in Fort Wayne.
Allen County Republican Party Chairman Steve Shine says he’s received commitments from each of the announced Republican Senate candidates to participate in a “debate-style program.” He says a panel of journalists is expected to ask the candidates questions.
The April 23 event during the local party’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner will come two weeks before Indiana’s May 8 primary.
They’re competing for the GOP nomination to run against Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly in next year’s general election.
