Sioux Falls, SD — District 9 Senate Candidate Rob Wilson has challenged hisÂ opponent, Rep. Deb Peters, to a public debate after Peters skipped the forumsÂ sponsored by the Argus Leader Editorial Board and the League of WomenÂ Voters. The debate will be held at 5PM Friday, October 29th, in Sioux Falls at theÂ MariCar Community Center, 400 N. Valley View Road.Â On October 14th, 2010, Wilson spoke with Peters to discuss the possibility ofÂ having a debate somewhere in the district. After trading calls and emails forÂ over a week, Peters responded in an email October 24th that Friday the 29thÂ would work, going so far as to say, “Anyway – if you still think you can pull off thisÂ debate, I will be there.”Â Wilson said, “Talking with voters throughout District 9 has made me realize just how much voters want to be heard when it comes to issues they care about.Â Voters in District 9 deserve to have a candid conversation with their candidatesÂ for State Senate. It would be a shame for voters to get cheated out of theirÂ chance to grill us side by side.”
I find this a little humorous, but not surprising. This is the normal game Republicans play when they are ahead in the polls, avoid confrontation. Why? Because they have no solutions, and they hate to be questioned about solving problems. Oh, and they are weasels.
