TP endorsed-Vitter might appear at only two of seven TV debates
Written by 

vitter-commonUS Senator David Vitter, who, appears to be in a runoff with Jon Bel Edwards, and who yesterday picked up the endorsement off the Times Picayune newspaper, announced on Friday he would be attending three upcoming debates, one of them on statewide television.


However, out of the three televised debates so far, he has attended only one out of three and according to the AP, appears not to be attending three more scheduled before election day.   

Should that projection stand, Vitter will have attended only two out of seven statewide televised debates.  His campaign has noted that he has been present at over 30 forums as a candidate, but those are limited in scope in terms of audience and content.

A Friday press release said: David Vitter announced that he will be attending two issue specific debates next week. Vitter is also confirmed for the Louisiana Tech Debate on Thursday, October 15. 

“We’ll never achieve the Louisiana we all want without dramatically improving education for all our children. The budget may be our most immediate crisis, but education is our biggest, most important one long-term,” Vitter said. “I’m also the only candidate to make litigation reform a real priority to end frivolous lawsuits that cost us jobs. I’ve been attacked because of that, but I’m not backing down. Both of these issues are very central to this race.”
