Presidential Debates

Source: Bush and Kerry agree to three debates

A source says the Bush and Kerry campaigns have tentatively agreed to a series of three presidential debates. The agreement isn't final. But it calls for the debates to be spread over a two-week period beginning September 30th.

Details are being negotiated by former Secretary of State James Baker for President Bush and attorney Vernon Jordan for Senator John Kerry. It's not clear when any agreement would be announced.

The Bush campaign denied there's a deal. The tentative agreement also calls for one vice-presidential debate on October fifth between Vice President Dick Cheney and Senator John Edwards.
