U.S. Senate candidates Wendy Long and Kirsten Gillibrand will debate on Wednesday, October 17.

U.S. Senate candidates Kirsten Gillibrand and Wendy Long will take part in their one and only debate tonight at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs.

The debate between Democrat and incumbent Gillibrand and her Republican challenger Long will be broadcast live on NY1 and YNN, and co-moderated by NY1’s political anchor Errol Louis and YNN’s Capital Tonight host Liz Benjamin.

Gillibrand is expected to be reelected.

In a September Quinnipiac University poll, 64 percent of likely voters said they would vote for  Gillibrand.

The New York State Senator was appointed in 2009 to fill the empty seat left by Hillary Clinton when she became Secretary of State. In 2010, Gillibrand ran in a special election and won with around 60 percent of the vote.

If she wins this November, it will be the first time she is elected to a full six-year U.S. Senate term.
