Why won’t Nick Lampson debate? What is he afraid of? That people find out that he is well out of step with his district?
A few days after an announcement that U.S. Rep. Nick Lampson and challenger Pete Olson would meet in a chamber-sponsored debate, Lampson’s office has indicated he might not make it.
Huh? A Chamber official is confused:
As for the debate, she added, "we’ve had that set up with him since long before" an April run-off election in which Olson was elected the GOP nominee for the CD-22 seat in the November general election.
"That’s fascinating. I didn’t know; we have not heard this directly," said Olson spokeswoman Amy Goldstein when informed of the news. "As far as we know, it was scheduled; it was a done deal; it is a surprising development."
If he is too afraid to debate, how is he as a "conservative Democrat" going to stand up to Nancy Pelosi?
