Actually, I guess the Democratic Party challenger to Joe Walsh in the 8th District could be better described as having turned tail and walked away.
In any event, here is Walsh’s press release indicating to me that Tammy Duckworth’s campaign is going to be so, so controlled.
Pretty reminiscent of that of Melissa Bean.
The press release follows:
Duckworth Rejects Walsh’s Offer of Monthly Debates
More than a week ago, Congressman Joe Walsh reiterated his call for at least one debate with Tammy Duckworth per month beginning in April.
Unfortunately, Tammy flatly rejected the congressman’s offer.
She is proving time and again that her main priority is not speaking to the residents of the district.
“Even though Tammy found time to appear on MSNBC last week, this confirms she has no interest in debating Congressman Walsh on the issues,” said Walsh spokesman Christian Morgan.
“It is not unusual for a candidate like Tammy Duckworth to avoid debating the issues directly in front of voters, but this year is too important for that,” said Walsh spokesman, Christian Morgan.
“Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod and the other Washington, DC insiders may have picked the winner of the Democrat Primary, but the voters will pick their next Congressman.
“This November’s election is the most important election in our country’s history and the voters of the 8th District deserve to hear from the two candidates directly.”
