Hawley Accepts 5 Debates & Forums While McCaskill Ducks Offers
COLUMBIA, Mo. – Attorney General Josh Hawley has accepted five debates and forums to discuss the race with Senator Claire McCaskill, but to-date she has yet to accept a single debate or forum.
Over the weekend, Senator McCaskill noted she wants to have a debate. “I think what people want to see is a contrast, how we differ face to face,” she told reporters, but the fact remains that McCaskill has yet to agree on a date.
Attorney General Hawley is prepared to debate Senator McCaskill anywhere at any time.
“After weeks of ducking, Senator McCaskill has acknowledged she ‘wants’ a debate. So what’s stopping her? She should stop saying one thing and doing another,” said General Hawley. “Missourians deserve a Senator who will speak up about the issues, including our new Supreme Court nominee. I’m ready to debate, but Senator McCaskill still needs to accept an offer.”
