Two Democratic candidates heading into a primary next month for a state Senate seat will face off at a debate hosted by the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons next week.

Bridget Fleming, an attorney and Southampton Town board member, and Jennifer Maertz, an insurance litigation attorney, are scheduled to debate at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Southampton’s Rogers Memorial Library at 91 Coopers Farm Road.

Another debate is planned for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Rocky Point VFW on Main Street/Route 25A.
