I was forwarded parts of an email between some folks who are trying to set up a debate between Congressman Paul Broun and his opponent Barry Fleming. The Broun campaign has some stipulations. Apparently Broun criticized Whitehead for his lack of desire to debate openly.
We only have two stipulations: first, the candidates will not ask one another questions; second, there will be no “random” questions not pre-screened by the panelists, or any questions not related to public policy or issues before the US Congress.
There is really no need for a face to face meeting as these are the terms under which we will debate.
Let’s hope the list of stipulations doesn’t grow. Sometimes these things get out of hand.
