Jim Graves asked Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to debate him. Graves is the DFLer challenging Bachmann this year. In a press release, the campaign announced that they formally invited Bachmann asking her "to agree on a public debate schedule."
They sent a certified letter so that Bachmann can't play games and claim they didn't receive it.
"We simply want our campaigns to agree on the number of public debates and then begin to iron out the actual dates," said Graves' spokesperson Donald McFarland. The voters of the Sixth Congressional District deserve to hear both candidates speak about their plans to bring jobs to the district, as that is by far the most pressing issue."
What are the chances that Bachmann would agree?
