— Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and Republican challenger Thom Tillis have agreed to dates for two debates sponsored by the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters.

The debates will take place on Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. WRAL-TV and WRAL.com will carry both debates live.

Tillis has said he would like to debate Hagan up to 10 times, but Hagan said she would only agree to three debates.

Both campaigns have also agreed to a debate co-hosted by the N.C. League of Women Voters and WECT-TV (Wilmington). That date has not been set.
