PA-Sen: Toomey Responds to McGinty Debate Challenge
“We certainly support having debates in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, but why is Katie McGinty stopping at two?” asked Toomey for Senate spokesman Ted Kwong in a statement. “Why is she unwilling to debate in Scranton, Harrisburg, or Erie? Maybe it’s because she can’t defend her liberal pro-tax, weak on national security record. Maybe it’s because she thinks people outside of our two largest cities are ‘misinformed’, as she famously said last April.”
“We look forward to debating in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, at times and venues to be determined, and we urge Katie McGinty to stop insulting the great people who live in the rest of the Commonwealth,” he concluded.
On Friday, the McGinty campaign revealed that they had accepted the invitations of WPVI and KDKA to hold televised debates in Philly and Pittsburgh.
PoliticsPA has reached out to Sen. Toomey’s campaign about whether they’ve accepted these invitations but have not received a definitive response.
