U.S. Senate race has 2 upcoming debates and Carper will shockingly appear in one

DelawareOnline.com and The News Journal (aren’t they the same thing?) will be sponsoring a debate in the U.S. Senate race that will feature a showdown between progressive challenger Kerri Evelyn Harris and U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D).

The debate will also somehow feature Republican candidate Gene Truono, but not his primary opponent Sussex County Councilman Rob Arlett, who has a scheduling conflict.  What is Truono gonna do? Debate himself, or debate Carper and Harris in a three person debate.  It looks like Truono will just be questioned alone by a panel of journalists and the audience, starting at 7 pm.  The Harris-Carper debate begins at 7:30 and will last an hour.  Also, in an election campaign, there is no event that you have that cannot be postponed or rescheduled in favor of a debate.  What event does Arlett have?  A fundraiser?  Meeting with Satan?   All can be rescheduled.   He is ducking the public and questions, plain and simple.  Not showing up for a debate is disqualifying.

When: Monday, August 27, 2018, 7 pm
Where: Cab Calloway School of the Arts, 100 N Dupont Road in Wilmington.

Tomorrow, the Greater Hockessin Area Development Association is hosting a debate between the Senate candidates that will include Harris, Truono and Arlett, but apparently not Tom Carper.  Hey Carper, see my message to Arlett above.  The Senate is out of session.  You have plenty of money.  You have no excuse not to be at this debate.

When: Monday August 20, 2018 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Where: Hockessin Volunteer Fire Company Memorial Hall. 1225 Old Lancaster Pike, Hockessin 19707.

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.

  1. The fascinating part about both of these “debates” is that they seem to be 3-ways with 1 Dem + 2 Rep (or vice-versa), but neither of them invited the two 3rd party candidates who are ALREADY on the ballot for November. All four of these candidates are merely “hopefuls”. The excuse that is usually used is that these are for the primary. But, that would mean ALL 4 candidates would have to be present. This is just an opportunity for the establishment to continue to only promote two viewpoints, while silencing dissenting voices.

  2. Hmm, everything I’ve seen on Facebook has listed Carper as confirmed for GHADA tonight

    The Senate is actually in session tonight – they have two votes.
