* No surprise at all…
Gov. Pat Quinn won’t debate his lone Democratic challenger ahead of next month’s primary.
Activist Tio Hardiman wrote Quinn a letter requesting debates ahead of March 18, saying the public “deserves a serious debate.”
Quinn campaign spokeswoman Leslie Wertheimer said Friday she hadn’t seen the letter but no debates were to “take place.”
Politically, I guess I can’t blame Quinn. But, I’d really like to see a debate between those two.
*** UPDATE *** The News-Gazette is upset at Congressman Rodney Davis for not debating his Republican primary opponent…
The local League of Women Voters is holding a forum for Democratic and Republican congressional candidates on Feb. 20 at the Champaign City Building. It starts at 7 p.m. Five of the six Democratic and Republican candidates are expected to be there.
Davis won’t be because he lacks sufficient respect for his opponent and the public to show up.
