Cantwell agrees to debate Baumgartner

Posted By on Fri, Sep 14, 2012 at 10:04 AM

For the last few weeks, Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Michael Baumgartner has been bashing his opponent, incumbent Democrat Maria Cantwell, for not being willing to debate him. But at the same time, Cantwell had promised, repeatedly, that she would join him for a debate, eventually.

Now, just a week after Baumgartner pretended to debate an empty chair, it looks like Baumgartner's getting his debate, and Cantwell's fulfilling her promise.

Cantwell announced she'll take place in the October 12 League Of Women Voters debate. The exact details of the format has yet to be worked out, but the debate will be broadcast statewide on radio and television. Cantwell's campaign says she looks forward to discussing  her "tireless advocacy for Washington jobs – from apples to aerospace.." where Baumgartner says he looks forward to her talking about her explaining her record on "the Middle East and her support of the war in Afghanistan."
