(NECN: Alison King, Springfield, Mass.) - The candidates for the Bay State's U.S. Senate seat met for the third time in debate Wednesday night at Springfield's Symphony Hall.

The stakes were high in this debate for Republican Sen. Scott Brown and Democrat Elizabeth Warren, and the reason boiled down to what the polls said: The race is extraordinarily close.

Warren had perhaps her best night on the debate stage, and her campaign likes it when the conversation turns to issues, which Wednesday night's debate was very focused on. However, Brown also came prepared to defend his record.

Alison King has more on the story.
