The primary election behind them, officials with the Talent for Senate Campaign are now focusing on the big task ahead – defeating incumbent Senator Jean Carnahan at the polls in November. The Jim Talent for Senate Campaign had talked a lot about debates prior to the former St. Louis area Congressman’s victory in the primary balloting.Now, the challenges are being renewed. Campaign Manager Lloyd Smith says the primary election win is being used as a momentum builder for debates. Smith is hoping for between six and eight debates in all regions of the state. The Campaign has already accepted a number of debateinvitations and is waiting to hear from the Carnahan campaign. Smith says candidate forums are great, and Jim Talent will take part in them, but nothing replaces a debate. Smith says debates are especially useful for voters who have yet to make up their minds.
