Brian Dahle, District 1’s state senator and the Republican candidate for governor, asks the public’s help in getting the incumbent governor Gavin Newsom to debate him on television.
According to a statement from Dahle, “You may have heard, but Gavin Newsom finally agreed to debate me. But there’s a catch … Newsom only wants to debate on radio. He wants to wait two weeks after ballots have dropped. He will only debate on a Sunday during prime time for NFL and MLB playoffs. Tell me — does that sound like a good plan to present our differences to Californians?
“While of course we will take any opportunity to a live debate, these ‘confines’ around this debate beg the question: What is Newsom afraid of? I’m calling on Newsom to debate on live TV, before ballots drop, and not during primetime sports.
