South Dakota Public Broadcasting will carry it live on television and online starting at Thursday at 8 p.m. Central time.

It will be the second debate among former Gov. Mike Rounds, state lawmakers Larry Rhoden and Stace Nelson, attorney and Army Reserves Maj. Jason Ravnsborg (ROUNDS'-berg) and physician Annette Bosworth.

They're seeking the party's nomination in the June 3 primary for the seat being vacated by retiring Democratic U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson.

Sioux Falls business owner Rick Weiland is the lone Democratic candidate.

Former U.S. Sen. Larry Pressler, former state lawmaker Gordon Howie and Clayton Walker are the independents on the November ballot.
