PORTLAND, Maine — Three U.S. Senate candidates are squaring off for the first time in three weeks.

Republican Charlie Summers, Democrat Cynthia Dill and independent Angus King are appearing at the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce’s monthly “Eggs and Issues.”

Chris Hall, senior vice president for government relations, is moderating Tuesday’s program, which will focus on issues affecting the business community.

It’s the first time Dill, King and Summers have faced each other in a debate since Sept. 17 in Lewiston. King has accused Summers of ducking debates, but Summers says there are plenty of debates between now and the election.
