State Rep. John Bel Edwards and U.S. Sen. David Vitter to debate twice before the Louisiana gubernatorial election on Nov. 21



  For those who somehow still may be undecided in the Louisiana governor's race, you'll have two more chances to see the candidates debate.

  On Tuesday, Nov. 10 — during the week of early voting — state Rep. John Bel Edwards and U.S. Sen. David Vitter will hash it out in a live debate sponsored by Louisiana Public Broadcasting and the Council for a Better Louisiana (CABL). The hourlong, statewide-televised debate begins at 7 p.m.; there will be no live audience. They will meet again Nov. 16 at a debate sponsored by WVLA-TV in Baton Rouge. That debate will be held five days before the election.

  Vitter was excoriated by opponents in the primary for participating in only two of seven televised debates. The senator claimed he had official business in Washington, D.C.
