First Fitzpatrick / Murphy Debate on Friday

On Friday, Aug. 18th Mike Fitzpatrick and Patrick Murphy, candidates for PA-08, will hold their first debate. They’ll be debating the Iraq War, Social Security, Stem Cell research, and other topics at noon. The debate can be heard by listening to WBCB Radio 1490AM or online by clicking here.

Usually incumbents avoid these things like the plague, trying to pretend the challenger doesn't exist. I find it very interesting that current Republic Congressman Fitzpatrick has been so eager to debate Murphy that his congressional chief of staff takes a vacation day to call into a Murphy phone press conference to talk debate schedules. That says a lot and what is says isn't complimentary to Fitzpatrick.
