Two of Missouri's three Republican senatorial candidates are expected to meet in a debate in Branson.

U.S. Rep. Todd Akin and former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman both have committed to participate in Monday night's debate. The third candidate — St. Louis businessman John Brunner — is not planning to attend.
