With 12 days until the primary, Democratic Senate candidates Kweisi Mfume and Benjamin L. Cardin will face off tonight in a televised debate that gives the former congressional colleagues a high-profile opportunity to distinguish themselves before a wide audience.

It's "do or die" time for Mfume, who has trailed Cardin in polls, according to Zach Messitte, assistant professor of political science at St. Mary's College.
