NEW: MA Gubernatorial Candidate Fisher Challenges Baker to Debate

Monday, March 03, 2014

 

Republican Gubernatorial candidate Mark Fisher has officially asked Charlie Baker to debate prior to the party’s nominating convention on March 22.

In an email sent from Fisher to the Baker campaign, an open invitation as to time and place was proposed, allowing the Baker camp to decide whether on not to accept the request.

Fisher, a first time candidate, cited that the Democrat candidates for Governor have had at least 6 debates/forums in the last 6 weeks where they “propagate their liberal positions of raising taxes and opposing the death penalty for the Boston Marathon bomber”.

The two announced Republican candidates appear to differ on a variety of policy issues including increasing the minimum wage, illegal immigration, the elimination of tolls, gun rights and a variety of social issues.

Fisher explains that debates are necessary for voters to learn about the candidates, especially with the convention just a few weeks away (10 weeks earlier than the Democrats on March 22 compared to June 13 and 14). Both party conventions require candidates to receive a minimum of 15% of the vote, which has proven very difficult.

In the email to Baker, Fisher said “I know that debates are essential to an informed electorate and with our convention just a few weeks away I believe we owe it to the delegates and the entire party to join together and explain our policy positions”.
