FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — The two major party candidates for Connecticut governor will be debating on live TV for a third time as they hit the final two weeks of the campaign.

Democrat Dan Malloy and Republican Tom Foley are scheduled to appear at Fairfield University on Tuesday. The 3 p.m. debate is sponsored by and will air live on Connecticut Public Television, Connecticut Public Radio and WFSB-TV.

Independent candidate Tom Marsh wasn’t invited. The three candidates are running for the seat being vacated by Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell, who’s not seeking re-election.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Friday showed Malloy, the former mayor of Stamford, with a 49 to 42 percent lead among likely voters over Foley, a Greenwich businessman and former U.S. ambassador to Ireland.
