Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tricia Flanagan has challenged her opponents to a debate. As of this writing neither Mehta, Singh or Rivera have accepted (I realize Anagnos is also in the race but I don’t believe he’s a serious candidate). The NJGOP will not offer a platform for the candidates to debate. Is Tricia Flanagan the only U.S. Senate candidate who believes that New Jersey voters deserve a chance to compare candidates issue by issue? Why will New Jersey’s Republican political bosses not encourage the candidates to debate?
