Cuccinelli tires of Shannon’s games; issues a man-to-man challengePolitics

Representing something akin to “meet me in the playground after school”, Sen. Ken Cuccinelli issued the following challenge to Del. Steve Shannon today:

FAIRFAX — After hearing of Steve Shannon’s silly, time wasting tele-conference, Senator Ken Cuccinelli pledges NOT to do the same. However, Ken Cuccinelli did issue the following challenge:

“Steve, last week I sent you a letter asking if you would follow up on your pledge to debate me across the Commonwealth. As of today, I have yet to receive a response. I will not debate you via fax, nor by “tele-phone conference”. Pick a day, any day this weekend, or this week, and you can ask me your four questions, and I will ask mine. The people of Virginia deserve real substantive debates on issues they are concerned about. You’ve ducked two debate invitations already….will you duck this one?

Below is a link to the letter Senator Cuccinelli sent last week challenging Steve Shannon to debates around the Commonwealth. Instead of debating in person, it appears that Shannon’s “new” campaign team wants him to debate via fax.

    Hmmm, the senator should probably be careful what he wishes for. He’s got a bit of a case of foot in mouth disease. Seems like you try to minimize your opportunities.

    classic Cuccinelli. I fully expect Shannon to keep ducking – what else can he do? Ken has what it takes and all Steve has is a bank account…
