         It's the seventh TV debate in the race ahead of Saturday's election. Vitter attended two.

         Beginning at 7:00 p.m. and sponsored by LSU's Tiger TV, the debate will be broadcast by WBRZ in Baton Rouge, WWL in New Orleans, KTBS in Shreveport and KATC in Lafayette and streamed online at
