It's debatable

Mark Warner and Jim Gilmore have agreed to a one-hour televised debate on October 3 at 7:00 PM. Roanoke TV station WSLS (Ch. 10) will make the feed available statewide. This will be the third debate between the two, but the first to be televised across the commonwealth. The moderator and format of the debate are still being worked out.
So, now that the Senate candidates have agreed to a debate, how about you, Mr. Goodlatte? Don't you believe the voters of the 6th District deserve the same chance to hear from you and Sam Rasoul? The opportunity to compare your stands? The chance to see you side-by-side and compare your demeanor, your knowledge, and if you will give straight forward answers to difficult questions?
You've been stonewalling, Bob. Trying to run out the election clock. Mr. Rasoul has proposed a series of six debates for the 6th District. It is time for you to step up and meet your opponent and the people of this great district.
Contact Bob. Tell him to agree to no fewer than three debates, with one in each region of the district.
