Well, this is something new — accusing an opponent of ducking a debate before voters weigh in.
Democrat Ed Case has accepted a debate appearance with Linda Lingle on Aug. 15 — four days after the Aug. 11 primary.
The Maui Chamber of Commerce‘s invitation is to the primary winners, according to a Case email, which adds, “Congresswoman Mazie Hirono was also invited but has not accepted.”
Press release quote from Case:
I look forward to many real debates with Linda throughout the general. I’m sure she, like me, will accept all reasonable opportunities
