Susan Moran Palmer challenges opponent to 6 Debates – one for each county in 16th Congressional District
Palmer tells Gonzalez: “Stop hiding in the locker room!”
WESTLAKE, OHIO –
To ensure that voters in the 16th Congressional District make an informed decision in November’s general election, Susan Moran Palmer has challenged opponent Anthony Gonzalez to debate her on six occasions before Election Day. Palmer proposed that one debate would be held in each county in the District: Stark, Summit, Wayne, Portage, Medina, and Cuyahoga.
The challenge was issued to Gonzalez’s campaign via email and phone message on September 6th. It came soon after the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland informed Susan Moran Palmer that Gonzalez had refused to participate in their voter forum.
“Our voters deserve to hear from any candidate seeking to represent them in Congress, especially someone who just moved here from California and knows so little about our district,” said Ms. Palmer. “He’s never been elected, and so can’t expect to avoid any scrutiny of his positions or knowledge. I am ready and eager to debate the issues facing our communities and this country, but Mr. Gonzalez seems to think that wearing a football jersey will make voters ignore how unprepared he is for this office, and that he will be just be another vote for the president’s harmful policies.
“It’s time that voters have the chance to Ask Anthony: Whose team are you on – Trump’s or ours? Why should anyone believe that you will stand up to those big money special interests that are bankrolling your campaign and fight for the hard-working families of the 16th District?”
