I just received an email from the Tester campaign entitled, “Expect Sharp Contract in First U.S. Senate Debate.” Part of the email follows:
Tester last week challenged Rehberg and Libertarian candidate Dan Cox to six additional debates in the fall—in Butte, Helena, Great Falls, Billings, Missoula and Bozeman. Tester wants to ensure debates are widely broadcast to ensure coverage throughout the state.
Rehberg has not accepted Tester’s challenge.
“Congressman Dennis Rehberg should follow Jon’s lead because all Montanans deserve to hear an honest comparison between Jon, a Montana farmer, and Dennis Rehberg, a politician who’s spent the last 12 years in Washington,” said Montanans for Tester spokesman Aaron Murphy. “Jon looks forward to comparing his record with Congressman Rehberg’s irresponsible support of tax breaks for millionaires while making decisions that have hurt Montana.”
I’m unsure as to whether or not the Libertarian candidate, Dan Cox has accepted the challenge.
After releasing an embarrassingly bad TV ad this week (I don’t know many “Montana Ranchers” who drive brand spankin’ new Jeeps around D.C. – the transparency is painful), maybe Developer Denny is just feeling a little shy.
