Hughes Presses Peterson for 8 Debates
August 22, 2018 (Karlstad, MN) – For Immediate Release - Dave Hughes, Republican candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District, today proposed eight in-district, live audience candidate debates moderated by representatives of Seventh District television, radio and newspaper outlets. The proposal is a stark contrast with that of the two debates Hughes’ DFL opponent, Collin Peterson, has historically agreed to.
“Our district stretches from Canada almost to Iowa, and includes 38 counties. I propose at least eight debates be held to ensure voters in every region of the Seventh Congressional District have an opportunity to attend and hear the policy positions of me and my DFL opponent Collin Peterson.” – Dave Hughes, Candidate for US House, MN-7
The debate locations in the Hughes proposal include Warroad, Thief River Falls, Bemidji, Moorhead, Fergus Falls, Morris, Willmar, and Marshall. The debates could be held as morning, afternoon or evening events to be as inclusive of voter work schedules and host/sponsor requirements as possible.
