They have debated once. They will debate two more times. But one of the candidates for United States Senate insists they should debate many more times.
Republican Deb Fischer and Democrat Bob Kerrey will debate two more times as they enter the stretch run in their race for United States Senate.
The Kerrey camp had accused Fischer of trying to dodge debates. She insists that has never been the case.
“From the beginning of the campaign, since the primary, I think I have been very open in saying I would do three debates,” Fischer says.
The two met for their first debate during the State Fair in Grand Island. That debate received national exposure. The Omaha World-Herald, the Grand Island Independent and RFD-TV sponsored the debate. RFD-TV broadcast it for its national audience.
The Omaha Chamber of Commerce and KETV will sponsor the second debate on Friday, September 28th, at the Omaha Community Playhouse. It will be broadcast by KETV on Sunday, September 30th. The third debate has been scheduled for Monday, October 1st, at the NET TV studios in Lincoln that evening.
Three debates aren’t enough, according to Kerrey.
“Well, there should be many more debates. I mean, how hard is it? Invite her over this afternoon. This is not difficult. We should have lots of debates,” Kerrey says.
No further debates have been scheduled.
