Massa/Kuhl to Hold Debate

Filed under: Eric Massa,Randy Kuhl — theruralpatriot @ 12:58 pm

Randy Kuhl has accepted Eric Massa’s invitation to debate. The Massa campaign would like to have a series of 8 debates, one in each county of the 29th District; however, to date, Mr. Kuhl has agreed to only one debate.

WLEA radio in Hornell has agreed to host the debate.  (Only those in that station’s coverage area will be able to hear it.)  As of now, this is the only media outlet that I am aware of that will cover the event.  I’m hoping that other outlets will pick up the coverage so that all of the residents of the district would be able to listen.  I’d prefer the “Series of 8” debates so that interested constituents could attend.  Radio is good, but it’s not as good as being there or watching it on TV.

As soon as the details are set for the debate, I’ll let you know.

UPDATE – 7/27; From the comments:

We have tentative agreement for a second radio debate, on WXXI radio in Rochester, hosted on the Bob Lonsberry show. NO specifics are finalized yet.

  1. If there is any chance that you are able to hear this debate, make sure that you tune in and listen. I’m hoping that other radio stations in this district will pick up the live feed and broadcast it. Better still would be the opportunity to attend or having a televised version – I feel that we are missing out here!

  2. What’s the 411 on the guy they proposed to moderate the debate, Kevin Doran? The fact that he’s listed on this website
    here doesn’t bode well.

  3. Prior to the debate announcement, I had never heard of Kevin Doran. A quick google search shows that he is interested in conservative guests and issues. A look at his station’s program line-up also shows that the conservative point of view is the theme of the station’s choices. I suspect that Mr. Doran’s moderating skills will favor Mr. Kuhl’s point of view; however, I hope he will conduct this debate in a fair manner.

  4. What a loser Kuhl is — he wants to have some right-wing crackpot moderate the debate on a right-wing crackpot station.
