The expectation is for a lively night since the two exchanged insults in their first meeting over issues that have played out on a barrage of TV commercials in what is one of the most costly and closely watched U.S. Senate races in the country.

The two planned to debate tonight in Columbus at 8 p.m. It will be broadcast on Columbus television stations.

The auto bailout was a highlight of the first debate earlier this week, with Mandel saying he wouldn’t have supported it and Brown reiterating his backing of the plan.
