NEW: Warren Agrees To Debate in Worcester

Friday, June 22, 2012

 

One day after agreeing to terms for a debate in Lowell, Democratic Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren has agreed to debate Senator Scott Brown in Worcester.

A press release issued by the Warren campaign said that their candidate considers it a priority to hold debates in all parts of the state so that voters in all parts of the state can have a chance to hear from the candidates about the local and stateside issues important to them.

While Warren considers it a priority to hold debates in all parts of the state, Republican Scott Brown’s campaign said yesterday they wouldn’t consider any other debates. Under Brown’s plan, major parts of the state like Worcester and the South Coast would get shut out from hosting debates.

“Elizabeth said from the beginning that she wanted to do televised debates before regionally diverse audiences. The residents of Central Massachusetts deserve the opportunity to hear from both candidates on issues important to the area. While Elizabeth is willing to do another debate to make sure their concerns are heard, Scott Brown is closing the door on the voters of Central Massachusetts," said Mindy Myers, Campaign Manager for Elizabeth Warren for Massachusetts.

The Brown campaign declined to address the issue of debating in Worcester, stating that the senator has already agreed to six debates, more than any other incumbent Massachusetts Senator in 16 years.

“We've already accepted six debates, and we look forward to seeing Professor Warren at the first one next week,” Colin Reed, a Brown campaign spokesman said.

Jim Barnett, Brown’s Campaign Manager issued a press release stating “We look forward to discussing the very real differences between Senator Brown, who has a proven record of being an independent fighter for jobs, and Professor Warren, whose extremely liberal tax and spend agenda would kill jobs and hurt our struggling economy."
