Allen West Accepts Debate Invitation, Calls on Patrick Murphy to Face the Voters
Stuart, FL – Today Congressman Allen West accepted an invitation from the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce and Palm Beach State College to debate Democrat nominee Patrick Murphy. Allen West for Congress released the following statement calling on Patrick Murphy to do the same:
“Our nation faces enormous challenges and voters are looking for serious solutions. The voters of Palm Beach County deserve an opportunity to cast an educated ballot and the opportunity to witness substantive debates that get beyond talking points and scripted speeches,” said Congressman West. “I welcome this opportunity to compare my ideas and solutions to my opponent’s lack thereof.”
“It’s time for Patrick Murphy to face the voters and stop hiding behind young children and his father’s racist, vile attack ads. Spewing hate, discredited lies and poll-tested talking points will not get the nation back on track,” said West Campaign Manager Tim Edson. “It’s time for Patrick Murphy to grow up, accept this debate invitation and take part in a serious conversation on the issues.”
Allen West continues to stand by his challenge for four televised debates open to the public and looks forward to debating Murphy in each county comprising Florida’s 18th Congressional District.
