Schrader Doesn’t Want to Debate

Salem, OR — Today, the Colm Willis for Congress campaign slammed Kurt Schrader for declining to participate in a televised forum hosted by the League of Women Voters of Marion and Polk counties. The League of Women Voters was forced to cancel the forum since they require that all candidates running for Congressional District 5 must appear at the forum for it to be held. The forum was to air on Salem’s CCTV.

“Skipping a televised forum is not a good look for any candidate for public office. I sincerely hope Kurt really is just too busy to speak with the voters and isn’t coming down with something serious like pneumonia,” said Reagan Knopp, campaign manager.
