First two debates set in Kennedy successor race reports:

BOSTON—The final stretch in the race to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the death of Edward Kennedy kicks off with two scheduled debates.

The debates will include Republican Scott Brown, Democrat Martha Coakley and Libertarian Joseph L. Kennedy — no relation to Edward Kennedy.

The first meeting of all three candidates is set for Monday at 8 p.m. on the Dan Rea show on WBZ-AM.

The second debate will be taped on Tuesday at the WBZ-TV News studios at 7 p.m. and hosted by political analyst Jon Keller. It will be streamed live on the station’s Web site.

The debate will also be broadcast on Sunday morning.

Brown has challenged Coakley to up to seven debates before the Jan. 19 election.
