After generating significant numbers in a recent poll, Independent Rob Sobhani says he should be included in debates.

Just a day after a poll showed him with more than 20 percent of the vote, an independent U.S. Senate candidate in Maryland wants to be included in upcoming debates between the major party nominees.

In asking to be part of the debates, independent Rob Sobhani is citing a Gonzales research poll that shows he is almost even with Republican nominee Dan Bongino. Sobhani, who announced his candidacy earlier this month and is running television ads, received 21 percent of the vote in the poll, to Bongino's 22 percent. 

Incumbent Democrat Ben Cardin was well ahead of both men at 50 percent. The campaigns for Cardin and Bongino are working on the details for debates, and a spokeswoman for Bongino's campaign says planning has involved campaigns that went through the primary election process.

Maryland's primary was held in April, months before Sobhani entered the race.
