“To ensure the voters are provided an opportunity to hear exactly where you stand, I challenge you to a series of four debates: one debate in each of the three counties that encompass the 18th Congressional District, and the fourth debate in the geographical center of the district in Martin County.Each debate will have a separate and specific focus: two debates will focus on economic security, another on energy security and the final on national security.”
