Will the governor debate Dahle?

District 1 Senator Brian Dahle, who has said he would debate California Governor Gavin Newson “any time, any place,” continues to push for a debate between the Democrat incumbent and his Republican challenger.

Dahle announced he has collected commitments from television and radio stations up and down the state to broadcast the debate, but everyone’s still waiting for the governor to accept his invitation to the party.

According to a statement from the Dahle campaign, “With the November election just around the corner, and ballots being mailed soon, it is especially important that Californians have the information they deserve to make informed decisions about who will be California’s governor.

“Senator Brian Dahle announced his candidacy for governor earlier this year, and has made it well-known that he will debate the current governor “any time, any place.” It is important that Californians see with their own eyes the contrast between Dahle and Newsom and hear unfiltered where they stand on the important issues for Californians.

“Dahle is excited to announce a coalition of television and radio stations covering the entire state have agreed to host a debate between the candidates. The coalition of media outlets includes KCRA 3 and partnering television stations in Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and others. It will also be covered by radio stations statewide.

“It is unknown whether Governor Newsom has accepted this debate offer, or if he is waiting until after his much-anticipated debate with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (which he wanted televised on CNN). Although, we believe he should put California first. Dahle is also in discussions with Fox television stations and other public radio outlets in hopes of announcing additional media hosted debates soon.”
