BOSTON (AP) - Officials from the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate have rescheduled a proposed campaign debate between Republican Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren because the original day would fall during the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.
Originally slated for Sept. 26, the debate has been reset for Sept. 27.
Victoria Kennedy, the wife of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, sent letters to the two political rivals last week, inviting them to go head-to-head at the University of Massachusetts campus, near where the institute is currently being built.
A spokesman for Brown would not confirm if the he will participate, saying "everything is under consideration."
Warren's campaign said Wednesday she will take part.
