UPDATE: Okay, sometimes Detroit gets it wrong. Sorry, I apologize to both candidates and the debate organizer. Apparently there is many conflicting schedules in the debates being proposed. Thanks for clarification from the debate organizer. I do stand by my words though about debating your opponent, and feel it is important. I also put this information out there for these reasons, to get the RIGHT story.
From a South DaCola foot soldier;
Lennox HS debate coach has been attempting to put together public debates between District 6 candidates. He has set them up as two sessions; one, between the four House candidates and the other, between the two Senate candidates. O
ne of the Senate candidates (Ernie Otten) is resisting this – wanting to have all 6 candidates at one time.The debate coordinator feels this would muddy the comparisons between candidates. Rumor has it Otten has also been using conflict with high school sports season as a reason to reject various dates. So why doesn’t Otten want a one-on-one with Schriever? If I was Otten I would leap at the opportunity to challenge my opponent one-on-one. Not only would you get more time to argue your case, you can clearly set yourself a part from your opponent. I wonder what Rich thinks of the whole matter?
