Case v. Hirono v. Lingle v. Debates

·By civilbeat

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
