Kristin Cabral, Democratic candidate for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, has issued a challenge to incumbent Congressman Frank Wolf to participate in a series of debates across the district. The debates will be sponsored by various community organizations and media outlets.
The debate locations are set to be held in Winchester, Berryville, Great Falls and Manassas. The Kristin Cabral Campaign would also like to see a fifth debate added to the calendar, to be held in Loudoun County. The details of the four specific debates, which Kristin Cabral has now publicly challenged Wolf to participate in, are as follows:
October 2, 2012
Northern Shenandoah Valley Tea Party Congressional Debate & Forum
October 10, 2012
The Clarke Daily News Congressional Debate
October 23, 2012
Great Falls Citizen Association Political Debate at Grange
Great Falls, Virginia
October 26, 2012
Prince William Committee of 100 Candidates Forum
“Participating in these debates isn’t something Frank Wolf should do for me,” said Cabral. “It’s something that he should do for his constituents.”
The first of the four debates is scheduled for Tuesday, October 2nd in Winchester. It is sponsored by The Northern Shenandoah Valley Tea Party. This provides the opportunity for Cabral to truly establish her willingness to reach across the political spectrum to solve problems by listening and discussing the concerns of the people regardless of their political affiliations. This is a trait has been sorely lacking in the current Congress.
“The Northern Shenandoah Valley Tea Party would welcome the chance to host a debate between the candidates of the 10th Congressional District of Virginia,” said Chairman Jay Marts. “We want all citizens to cast an informed vote in November.”
“Healthy debate is a huge part of maintaining a healthy democracy,” added Cabral. “We need to give voters all across this district access to the candidates as much as we can throughout the next month and a half. If a congressman decides to only debate in certain specific areas of his district, what does that say about him and his perception regarding the importance of one particular area’s constituents versus another?”
