I’m Carrie Lucking, the Communications Director for Tarryl Clark’s Campaign for Congress in Minnesota.
Tonight there will be a debate in Michele Bachmann’s hometown of Stillwater. Unfortunately for her constituents, it doesn’t look like she was able to find time to attend, given her busy schedule campaigning for other candidates around the country.
It's pretty unbelievable. The debate is literally in her own backyard – just 15 minutes from her house — yet she still refuses to attend. We know the reason, of course: she’s done nothing for the people in her district, but plenty for the powerful special interests. And that’s why she’s so afraid to face voters in this election.
That left us wondering once again what a debate between Michele Bachmann and Tarryl Clark would sound like.
If you’re as curious as we are, check out the audio of what could happen if Bachmann debated:
Today, Tarryl challenged Congresswoman Bachmann to participate in eight town hall forums throughout the 6th Congressional District and participate in two debates in the 6th District.
The forums will take place over the remaining three weeks of the campaign, and will include the following communities: Woodbury, Andover, St. Cloud, Forest Lake, Elk River, Buffalo, Lexington, and St. Joseph. These are in addition to tonight's debate in Stillwater and a debate in Monticello, hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, on October 18th.
In issuing that challenge, Tarryl also committed to continue to participate in these open forums once she’s in Congress. Tarryl knows that real Representation starts by listening to people and meeting with them face-to-face.
Will Michele Bachmann show?
With just three weeks to go until Election Day, it is essential that Bachmann face the voters and explain to them why they should send her back to Washington.
We haven’t been able to find a good reason so far.
