The debate on debates appears to be over.
In August, Democratic nominee for Senate Katie McGinty challenged Republican incumbent Senator Pat Toomey to two TV debates. Toomey responded that he wanted to have additional forums in cities outside of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
Eventually, the Senator would propose four debates, the two in Philly and Pittsburgh that he agreed to plus one in Harrisburg and one at Bucknell University. McGinty rejected that offer.
“It looks like Katie McGinty will get her way, and there will only be two debates instead of four,” said Toomey for Senate spokesman Ted Kwong. “We understand why she prefers to hide her record of supporting massive middle-class tax increases and dangerous sanctuary cities from voters, but it’s a real disservice to the people of Pennsylvania.”
The debates will occur at KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh on October 17th and WPVI-TV in Philadelphia on October 24th.
