NASHVILLE (AP) — Democrat Phil Bredesen is proposing four debates before the November election for U.S. Senate against Republican Marsha Blackburn, whose campaign says she's still finalizing her debate schedule but looks forward to debating Bredesen.

Bredesen's campaign said Monday that the former governor has agreed with debate sponsors to events at Rhodes College in Memphis on Sept. 13; at Cumberland University in Lebanon on Sept. 25; at Tivoli Theatre in Chattanooga on Oct. 1; and at the University of Tennessee's Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy in Knoxville on Oct. 10.

Blackburn campaign spokeswoman Abbi Sigler said the congresswoman is finalizing her slate of debates and is pleased to see Bredesen is willing to debate.

Bredesen and Blackburn are vying to succeed retiring Republican Sen. Bob Corker.
