I agree completely with the author of this post– it seems necessary for someone who is running for any public office, let alone Congress, to be open for public debate and deliberation. Since that person is going to be representing countless individuals in government, it’s absurd for him or her to not be willing to have a public contestation of ideas.
In just more than a month, Mississippi voters will head to the polls to vote in primary midterm elections for Congress, with two races showcasing viable challengers to Republican incumbents.
Chris McDaniel is riding tea party support as an aggressive challenge to longtime incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran. In the 4th Congressional District, former Democratic incumbent Gene Taylor has switched parties to challenge incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo.
What is disappointing in both races is that the incumbents are refusing to debate their challengers.
