But, just now on the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader popped that trial balloon.
Mr. Reid: Mr. President, we've had the stall here for several days now. I wanted to make sure that one of the Senators who wanted to go to a debate would be able to do that tonight. So he can go now, because as I announced a half-hour ago, plenty of time to do the debate.
So there's plenty of time to catch his plane back to Boston. Good luck, Sen. Brown!
Here's the debate details:
Debate time: 7:00-8:00 ET Watch and/or listen: The debate will stream live on CBSBoston.com. (There's a rumor that it will also be on CSPAN, but it's not on today's schedule yet.)
