In the run up to the 2014 midterm elections, C-SPAN plans to air more than 100 Senate, House, and governor debates, with simulcast support from local broadcast stations and cable channels. The public affairs cable network also launched a landing page for video coverage of said debates, named Campaign 2014.
“With the balance of power at stake in Congress, especially in the closely watched U.S. Senate races, C-SPAN will be the one place where you can see all the debates in the most competitive races,” said C-SPAN senior EP and political editor Steve Scully, who will be managing the network’s political team for the 2014 midterms. “Our partnerships with the local broadcast stations and cable companies across the country who televise these debates locally make our comprehensive coverage possible.”
Fall debate coverage on C-SPAN begins September 3 at 7pm with the North Carolina Senate debate on C-SPAN, C-SPAN radio, and C-SPAN.org.
