Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill and her Republican challenger Congressman Todd Akin will debate inside the auditorium at Clayton High School. Cones are already up around the outside of the auditorium designating places where people can be and where they won't be allowed.
This will be the second time Akin and McCaskill will debate. Earlier this week, McCaskill released a new internal poll showing her up by 14 points over Akin. That came after a conservative poll a few days earlier showed Akin up in the race by four to five points.
Polls have varied in the race between McCaskill and Akin. Many, including top Republicans called for Akin to withdraw from the race after his controversial statements made on The Jaco Report about how victims of 'legitimate rape' can somehow avoid pregnancies.
Akin has apologized repeatedly for the comments but has refused to pull out of the race.
