Enough with the surrogates

Posted By on Thu, Mar 18, 2010 at 6:31 AM

John Brummett is tired of paid campaign hands doing the jousting for Lt. Gov. Bill Halter and Sen. Blanche Lincoln in their primary battle for U.S. Senate. He calls for a debate.

Me, too.

It so happens I'd messaged both campaigns yesterday for progress on the debate front. A Halter spokesman said, absolutely, Halter would debate. One TV station has been in touch. No response at all so far from the Lincoln camp. (I presume the third Democrat would show up wherever if allowed.)

UPDATE: A Lincoln spokesman says the senator will debate.

Now, the question: Can busy schedules accommodate a meeting on terms agreeable to all?
