Bedford, N.H. – U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner today invited incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen to discuss the issues surrounding the President’s planned Supreme Court nomination on a live New Hampshire radio talk show.
“I hope the Senator will agree to a thoughtful discussion of our views on filling the vacancy caused by the passing of Justice Ginsburg,” said Messner. “Speaking to a radio audience and to each other, in a live forum, would provide Granite State voters with a much-needed opportunity to learn what we believe is the best way forward and why.”
Last week, Messner asked that Senator Shaheen agree to a total of six debates. He points out she has committed to three meetings before the Nov. 3 general election, “but I think voters learn so much about a candidate through these debates, and I hope the Senator will accept my proposal and we can schedule those additional debates in the coming weeks.”
