The first public meeting between U.S. Senate candidates Michelle Nunn and David Perdue takes place in Macon Aug. 21.

The two will meet at a forum sponsored by the Georgia Association of Broadcasters in partnership with the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and Georgia News Network.

It happens at a lunchtime event at the Macon Marriott City Center.

Nunn, a Democrat, and Perdue, a Republican, are running for the Senate seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss next year.

The Perdue campaign confirms that this will be the first scheduled meeting between the two.

Both candidates have Houston County roots and well-known political names. Nunn's father is a former U.S. Senator, Sam Nunn, from Perry. Perdue grew up in Bonaire and his cousin, Sonny Perdue, is a former Georgia governor.

Election Day is Nov. 4 and the deadline to register to vote is Oct. 6. Early voting begins Oct. 13.

Also on the ballot is a Libertarian candidate, Amanda Swofford, who is not scheduled to take part in the Aug. 21 forum.
