U.S. Senate candidate Curran says Illinois deserves to see debates with Democrat Sen. Durbin
LIBERTYVILLE, Ill., June 11 – Mark Curran, IL Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in 2020 and former Sheriff of Lake County, is seeking numerous debates with incumbent Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin because he believes the people of Illinois deserve to have them.
“I want debates with Sen. Dick Durbin.
“I would want debates every week if I could.
“The citizens of Illinois deserve that because they only have two U.S. Senators.
“So essentially that’s the highest office they are going to be able to vote for other than the president.
“So it’s a very, very, very important office,” said Curran in a released statement.
Curran has not yet had the opportunity by the Chicago media to debate Sen. Durbin during the 2020 election cycle and he believes not having debates feeds corruption.
Curran is willing to meet any time, and place for several debates with Sen. Durbin.
“To not have debates is just feeding the corruption, fueling the corruption that exists in Illinois.
“Not having debates signals to the Illinois citizens that the incumbent party is essentially saying that THEY don’t need debates, we are going to squash any opposition, and that is what dictatorial regimes do,” said Curran.
“If the democrats and Illinois media do everything they can to make sure the opposition isn’t heard, that the opposition’s voice isn’t out there, or that the opposition can’t get traction, that’s not America,” Curran said.
Illinois constituents are encouraged to contact their local media and Sen Durbin’s office requesting debates with the Republican candidate in 2020 not be denied to the voters of the state.
