A local debate is also garnering a lot of attention.
The race for Louisiana's 3rd Congressional District.
Five candidates are in running but the frontrunners Dr. Charles Boustany Of Lafayette and Jeff Landry of New Iberia both Republicans are hot on the campaign trail in the final weeks before election.
A debate was scheduled to take place at UL between the two but that debate was cancelled which is only adding fuel to the fire.
All five candidates including Landry and Boustany have already taken in part in two different candidate forums.
