IUS gets ready to host U.S. Senate debate

Posted: Updated:

NEW ALBANY, IND. (WDRB) -- A security sweep is done, and now IUS is getting ready to host the U.S. Senate debate.  Barricades have been set up, and IUS has already reserved space for groups to protest tonight on grassy areas by the Ogle Center.

The university says one group is protesting the United Auto Workers taking 300 of the 500 available tickets.

U.S. Senate candidate from Indiana, Democrat Joe Donnelly, Republican Richard Mourdock, and Libertarian Andrew Horning will take part in the debate.

The race has drawn in some of the most powerful politicians in the country because it's one of a handful of races that determine which party controls the Senate.

Mitt Romney is supporting Mourdock in a new television ad, and former President Bill Clinton stumped for Donnelly during a rally in Indianapolis earlier this month.
