MANCHESTER, N.H. — Democrat Paul Hodes and Republican Kelly Ayotte are facing off in a televised debate for the New Hampshire Senate race with days to go before the election.
They are meeting Thursday night at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College. Hodes, congressman for the state's 2nd District, has vacated the seat to run for the Senate.
Ayotte, the state's former attorney general, stepped down in July 2009 to run.
The debate is sponsored by WMUR-TV and the New Hampshire Union Leader.
