Three New York Republicans vying for Democratic U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's seat will take part in a televised debate.

Former congressman Joe DioGuardi, businessman David Malpass and attorney Bruce Blakeman are facing off in a Sept. 14 primary. The candidates hope to face Gillibrand in the general election.

The trio will make their cases in an hour-long debate airing Tuesday night on YNN cable network stations across New York.

Polls show Gillibrand with a commanding lead over each of the three Republicans.

Gillibrand is a former upstate congresswoman appointed last year to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton when she became secretary of state.

Gillibrand and the Republicans are running for a special two-year term that ends in 2012, when Clinton's term would have ended.
