50 days. That’s how long it took for Congressman Frelinghuysen to answer to his debate challenges. He will be debating his running-mate Douglas Herbert a democrat. Why did he take so long to accept the challenge to show the people of the 11th district what he stands for? When he received the invitation of the debate he claimed to have to check his busy fall schedule. Supporters of Herbert for congress, or anyone concerned with the issues facing us, the people of the 11th district had placed phone calls to Frelinghuysen’s office in DC and to his campaign HQ in Morristown, most of them unanswered. Douglas Herbert even went far enough to hold a press conference in front of the Republican HQ on Schuyler Pl. in Morristown. This was attended by some roughly 20 people, including Mr. Herbert’s family, reporters, people working on his campaign, and supporters; including republicans. These debates between Herbert and Frelinghuysen will be on October 17th and the 29th. The debate on the 17th will be at the WMTR studios in Morristown at 11am. While the second debate will be in Hackettstown at the WRNJ studios at 11am also. Students at Roxbury High School have also invited both candidates to speak on the night of September 28th, Congressman Frelinghuysen will be unable to attend this event, so it will not go on. Who do the people of the 11th district need? They need a congressman to represent the interests of the normal hardworking American. Not special and political interests. Please remember to go place your vote for Douglas Herbert on November 2nd if you live in the 11th district.
Debate for the people!
