ST. PAUL, Minnesota — Republican Senate challenger Mike McFadden is turning a Minnesota Senate debate against Democratic incumbent Al Franken into an infomercial.

McFadden's campaign announced Friday it would pay to re-air their only one-on-one debate so far. The campaign says the Oct. 1 debate has been edited to shorten the moderator questions but the candidate answers will air in full. McFadden says voters deserve every chance to see the two candidates side-by-side.

The Saturday afternoon airing will cost $5,000 for the full hour, according to records on file at WFTC in the Twin Cities.

Franken campaign spokesman Ryan Furlong says they also welcome the re-broadcast so voters can learn more about McFadden's investment banking background and policy positions.

Franken and McFadden are due to meet in two more debates later this month.
