The latest matchup between Republican Linda McMahon, a former wrestling executive, and Democrat Richard Blumenthal, the state’s attorney general, is scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Garde Arts Center in New London. The hour-long debate, sponsored by The Day of New London and WTNH-TV, will air live at 7 p.m. on MyTV9.

The two candidates participated in two face-to-face debates last week. A possible fourth debate is under consideration for the closely watched race.

Both are vying to fill the seat being vacated by the retiring Sen. Chris Dodd.
