WHEELING - A Wheeling debate between U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin and Republican challenger John Raese has been canceled.
Raese spokesman Josh Sowards says the Oct. 10 event was called off because of scheduling conflicts.
He says Raese will attend the other scheduled debate, which is set for Oct. 2 at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown.
Shepherd's master of business administration program is arranging that debate.
West Virginia Public Radio's Cecelia Mason will serve as the moderator, and journalists will pose questions on topics ranging from health care and energy to education and the environment.
The Shepherd University Foundation is handling inquiries about tickets for the debate at (304) 876-5397.
