It looks like Bruce Whalen has gotten his wish.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth and Republican challenger Bruce Whalen will meet in a series of three debates next month. Voters in the state are ready to hear what each has to say during this election season. Whalen insists Herseth has been dodging him, but we feel that three debates in October, all to be broadcast, will give the state’s voters a good idea what is on each candidate’s mind and in plenty of time before the Nov. 7 election.
I guess now he'll have to come out and discuss a more detailed platform that consists of something other than ripping Herseth for not debating him and deflecting questions as to why his campaign staff was perpetuating false rumors regarding Herseth.
